Vincentian students at the Caribbean Maritime University in Venezuela, Methlyn Gill and Decolia Adams graduated last Thursday with Bachelor’s degrees in management of international trade.

Both students were recipients of scholarships provided by the Government of Venezuela.

Gill graduated with honours and was selected valedictorian for her outstanding performance, which also landed her a two-year scholarship from the dean of the university to pursue postgraduate studies.

This achievement by these two young Vincentians was celebrated in the presence of the family of Gill — her mother Jacqueline Cain and her sister Andrea Cain — as well as the staff of the Embassy of St. Vincent and the Grenadines in Venezuela.

“Both were deservingly presented with gifts from Ambassador Mr. Andreas Wickham and his wife Mrs. Yvette Wickham, in recognition of her resilience and hard work,” the Agency For Public Information in Kingstown says.
