Students of the 2013 graduating class of the Dominica State College (DSC) made history Wednesday afternoon as 361 of them; the largest graduating class to date graduated.

Denzel Guye was the 2013 valedictorian. One student, Gina Paris-Christmas graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.

Three hundred and forty-seven students graduated with Associate’s Degrees from the Faculty of Applied Arts and Technology, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Faculty of Health Sciences and the Faculty of Education.

Twenty-six received certificates from the Faculty of Applied Arts and Technology as well as from the Faculty of Health Sciences.

Four graduates received the highest performing student with co-curricular activities awards from the four faculties.

Joseph Francis received that award in the Faculty of Arts and Technology, April Jules in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Alicia James in the Faculty of Health Sciences and Geraldine Gabriel-Magloire in the Faculty of Education.

“Commencement offers students and their families a unique opportunity to celebrate the culmination of a fantastic journey of learning and discovery,” president of the College, Dr Donald Peters said to the graduates.

This journey he said will lead them to wonderful employment and further education opportunities.

The ceremony occurred at the newly open DSC state of the art campus in Stockfarm.

“You are therefore the first graduates to participate in a graduation program on this new campus.”

Dr Peters told them to utilize the knowledge, competence and skills gained from DSC as they prepare for the new challenges and opportunities in the service of themselves, families and country.

The programme awards will be awarded at a separate function Dr Peters noted.
