…He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.” (1 Sam 7:12)
This scripture reflects the attitude of administrators faculty, staff and students of the University of the Southern Caribbean who gathered to celebrate and dedicate to the Lord the new female dormitory on February 28, 2018. The state of the art structure is elegantly perched on top the highest most visible point of the campus.
Among those in attendance was the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Dr Kern Tobias; Vice President of the North American Alumni Chapter, Mrs Nicole Archer; and Executive Secretary of the Caribbean Union, Pastor Johnson Frederick. University President, Dr Hilary Bowman in his address, lauded the efforts of past Presidents Dr Trevor Gardner and Dr Clinton A. Valley, commending them for their part played in the foundational phase of the dormitory. He so gratefully stated “With God, all things are possible” as he addressed those gathered to participate in the dedication ceremony.
Dr Bowman also cautioned the USC female dormitory students to always keep at heart the sanctity of the building while urged them to enjoy the comforts made available to them and care for their new home. Dr Kern Tobias sharing in the celebration referred to the completed dormitory as a miracle (that which came sooner than expected) and urged those present to hold Psalm 91 close to their hearts.
Mrs Nicole Archer expressed how delighted the North Alumni Chapter is to contribute to USC going beyond excellence and further expressed the Association’s loyalty to USC and its endeavours.
The President, administrators, faculty, staff, and students are eternally grateful to those who contributed to the completion of the ladies dormitory. The ladies have survived their valley experience and are now on their way to enjoy their mountaintop experience.
