Kingstown Technical Institute (KTI) held its Graduation Ceremony for the academic year 2019-2020 on Wednesday 9th December 2020, at which, nineteen (19) of MCF Partial Scholarship Awardees successfully graduated from their respective programs.
The Mustique Charitable Foundation (MCF) was also very pleased that the “Principal’s Award” and the “Most Outstanding Award” for each of the four programs were all captured by MCF Partial Scholarship Awardees. The four programs offered for the 2019-2020 academic year were Plumbing, Electrical Installation, Food Preparation & Cookery and Data Operations.
At the ceremony, Bertillon Hamilton (KTI Principal) expressed gratitude to the Mustique Charitable Foundation for filling the gap where the Ministry was unable to provide lunches for Technical Institute students. This was further expressed as the Mustique Charitable Foundation was presented with an “Appreciation Award” plaque for supporting the 2019-2020 CVQ Cohort at the Kingstown Technical Institute.
Additionally, Mr. Endoll Johnson (Senior Education Officer of TVET) acknowledged Mustique Charitable Foundation for their continued financial contribution towards Technical & Vocational Education & Training (TVET) in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.
In her brief address, Dularie Malcolm (MCF Project Director) highlighted that “Technical & Vocational Education was one of the main focus areas of the Mustique Charitable Foundation, so much so that for the 2020/2021 academic year, 170 Partial Scholarships were funded at the four (4) Technical Institutes and the Technical and Teachers Division at the St. Vincent & the Grenadines Community College”.
Mustique Charitable Foundation is heartened by the performance of our nineteen (19) Awardees for the 2019-2020 academic year and hope that the twenty (20) trainees awarded MCF Partial Scholarships for the 2020-2021 academic year will also benefit and succeed.
