Saturday 16 May was a series of firsts for the Student Council of the Anguilla Community College, in George Hill. It was their first event held after the opening ceremony earlier in the year, the first Annual Dean’s Evening celebration. The feature address was given by Mr Trixton Lamey, the first Valedictorian of the college.

When operating under a part-time-student atmosphere, it can be quite challenging to have a student body that feels connected as comrades – and develop that sense of community with students, teachers and staff. That was not a deterrent to President of the Student Council, Mr Neville Hamilton, and his team, for that was accomplished in part, at the dinner and dance held in the Dean’s honour, on Saturday 16 May at the College. A good contingent of the staff and students were present at the event making for a fun and successful evening for the Student Council.

The event, sponsored by the Dean of Studies, Dr Leroy Hill, was an opportunity for him to thank everyone for their hard work during the semester, and to encourage the students not only to improve intellectually but also in their social standing in the community as well. The student council received congratulations on fostering the spirit of togetherness.

Mr Trixton Lamey, the first Valedictorian, opened his address, by quoting Bruce Lee “The successful warrior is a simple man with a laser-like focus”. He further stated that “setting goals, or having dreams, will be no more than a fleeting illusion if you are not prepared to put in the hard work which is required.” He reminded the students that they are the torch bearers of the institution and that the College will primarily be measured by the caliber and quality of the graduates it produces: “Therefore, let everything you do be so dignified and virtuous so, when all is said and done the ACC will be always be referred to with reverence and admiration.”
