“I want to thank Mr Campbell and Victoria Mutual for assisting with the staging of the alumni cocktail, allowing the corps to highlight both its alumni engagement and philanthropic mandates, and to encourage alumni to ‘give forward’ to UWI students,” Francis said.

The cocktail reception, which aimed to raise funds for a UWI STAT bursary, also honoured Campbell for his mentorship as a corporate champion for its Mona corps. Read more
