Thursday December 1, 2011-The Sir Arthur Lewis Community College (SALCC) will host its twenty-fifth graduation ceremony on Sunday December 4, 2011, with over five hundred graduands expected to receive certificates for various academic achievements.  

The graduation will highlight the hard work and dedication of the students and staff, and the institution's journey over the years. 

SALCC's registrar, Beverly Josie, says all preparations are in place for the graduation which she says is a special milestone in the lives of the students. 

“Students who have excelled will receive various awards. We have students from the Division of Technical Education and Management Studies, the Department of Health Sciences, the Division of Arts Science and General Studies, Teacher Education and Educational Administration, and Agriculture. Students who have done very well will be getting subject and progamme awards. Special awards will go to students who have excelled within their Division and who have earned the highest grade point average.” 

The Sir Arthur Lewis Community College (SALCC) was established in 1985 and has provided tertiary level education to many Saint Lucians in various fields. 

The college is named after distinguished Nobel Laureate, Sir Arthur Lewis.

The institution’s registrar says during the 25th graduation ceremony, an update will be provided on the transformation of the college into a university college. 

“We don’t normally have a theme but this year is our twenty fifth anniversary and there has been a lot of talk on the transformation of the institution. I know officials will want to in some measure to focus on upcoming plans for the college. It is our twenty-fifth anniversary, and we want to celebrate it in a big way.” 

The graduation is scheduled to begin at 1PM and will be broadcast live on the National Television Network (NTN).
