Minister for Education and Human Resource Development, Petter Saint Jean, is complimenting the achievements of Dominican students who have done well while at universities overseas.
Four students, who studied at Midwestern State University, were recently recognized for their outstanding scholarly achievements and received induction into the Alpla Chi, Midwestern’s honour society for underclassmen.
The four students are Kimara Joseph; Denise Laurent; Samyah Marcelin; and Kerris Shillingford.
The minister reaffirmed government’s mission to have one university graduate in every household.
He has further encouraged young Dominicans to take advantage of the opportunities available to them in education.
Saint Jean said the Dominica Labour Party Government has given the assurance that opportunities for further education are being made widely available.
Midwestern State University has reserved four places for Dominican students in January 2014 and ten in August 2014.
