    DNO please get your facts straight. There is a difference between a medical student and a Doctor (Dr.). that Dr. at the front of one’s name should not be place so loosely. You could get the young man in a lot of trouble by doing so, consequences of misleading the public with wrong information. smh!

    ADMIN: This was a press release sent by the school. We shall contact the school to have this clarified.

    The more this evil DLP regime neglect Marigot and wesley, the more these villages continue to shine…I wish all 62 students well..Sadly most will have to leave the country soon, because the evil gang known as DLP does not know how to create jobs,they don’t know how to keep our human resource on island,neither do they know how to create the enabling environment for the private sector…WELL DONE NECS!!!!
