The UWIAA St. Lucia Chapter Provides Assistance to Students of the Bexon R.C. Infant School

bexonMany of us are familiar with the adage - our youth are the future leaders of tomorrow and according to Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945), “we cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.”

However, in order for us to do so, it is imperative that our youth be equipped with the educational materials necessary to allow them to thrive. It is on this premise that The UWI Alumni Association (UWIAA) St. Lucia Chapter made a donation of school books to eight students of Grades K, One and Two of the Bexon R.C. Infant School on October 8th, 2014.
