Barrouallie Technical Institute Graduation Ceremony 2020-2021 and 2021-2022
The Graduation Ceremony for Barrouallie Technical Institute (BTI) for the academic years 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 took place on Wednesday 2nd November 2022 and Mustique Charitable Foundation (MCF) is pleased to announce that thirty (30) trainees from academic year 2020-2021 and forty-two (42) from academic year 2021-2022 who were awarded MCF Partial Scholarships, successfully graduated from their respective programs. To add to this, the Valedictorian for both years and the recipients of the Principal’s Award for each year were MCF Partial Scholarship Awardees.
The programs offered for the 2020-2021 academic year included Garment Production, Front Office Operations, Cake Baking and Decorating, Amenity Horticulture, Housekeeping and Building/General Construction and for the year 2021-2022, all were also offered with the addition of General Office Administration.
During her brief address, Mrs. Carole Hannaway (BTI Administrative Head) spoke on the challenges that the institute faced including the COVID-19 Pandemic and La Soufrière Volcanic Eruptions which caused no graduation to take place in 2021. Nevertheless, she expressed that the Institute along with its partners over the last two years remain committed to deliver quality training with special emphasis on training in entrepreneurship. She went on to thank the Mustique Charitable Foundation for their continued support in providing partial lunch scholarships and made special reference to the new project embarked on by BTI, funded solely by MCF, which was done this year and is known as the Startup Grant/Loan Project.
MCF President, Nancy Young, though unable to attend the event in person, sent her regards and said that the foundation was pleased to see such deserving students successfully complete their studies and wishes them all very well.
MCF is heartened by the performance of all Awardees between both the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years
