UVI DONORS HONORED

Donors who have provided more than $100,000 paving the way for the University of the Virgin Islands to become a "truly global institution, a virtual Caribbean university," were thanked by UVI President Orville Kean at a reception at the Reichhold Center for the Arts.
Thanking both individual and corporate scholarship sponsors, Kean said, "You are the ones who open the doors of opportunity for young people." He told the audience, "your investments in education give the best returns yet."
"We want a metamorphosis to take place here," Kean said, sharing a bit of UVI's vision for the 21st century. "We want to be a leader in creating a virtual Caribbean university."
He noted UVI will be transformed by the increasing use of information technology, expanded course offerings and collaborations with other universities and research institutions. These innovations will all contribute toward making UVI a "global institution," Kean said.
Among donors attending the Wednesday reception were representatives of the Alumni Scholarship Fund of St. Thomas-St. John, the Bank of Nova Scotia, the Jones-Holloway-Bryan Foundation and the India Association.
The scholarships are distributed to the students through more than 70 programs and endowments.
