St Lucian Named Valedictorian at UWI Open Campus Graduation

UWI Open Campus

Rone Alexis was raised in a single parent family in Saint Lucia. From a tender age she was determined to be successful and to become someone who would influence others to achieve their dreams.

Saint Lucian-born Rone Alexis has been named Valedictorian for the 8th Open Campus graduation ceremony for The University of the West Indies. The ceremony, which is being held today in Saint Kitts and Nevis, will see Ms Alexis graduating with First Class Honours with a BEd in Early Childhood Development and Family Studies.

A graduate of the Leon Hess Comprehensive Secondary School and the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College in Saint Lucia, Rone subsequently gained valuable work experience from attachments to various government ministries, including the Early Childhood Education Unit.

In 2006, Rone joined the teaching profession at The Lady Gordon Opportunity Centre – a Special Education school in Saint Lucia. After two years of teaching, she pursued further studies at the Division of Teacher Education and Educational Administration of the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, graduating two years later with a 4.0 grade point average.

In 2012, not satisfied with an Associate Degree, Rone enrolled with The UWI Open Campus to read for a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Development and Family Studies. True to form, Rone continued on her path of excellence and today she graduates with a 4.03 grade point average.

Rone will deliver the Valedictory Speech on behalf of her colleagues from across the region. After the official Presentation Ceremony, the new graduates and their guests will celebrate their academic achievements at an official reception hosted by the Government and People of St. Kitts and Nevis.
