30 Vincentians to graduate in Cuba

Thirty Vincentians will be graduating from Cuban universities this year. The significance of this is being recognized by the Vincentian Cuban Students Association (VINSA) through the hosting of a series of activities here soon.
Ever since Vincentians began pursuing studies in the Republic of Cuba in 1980, this will be the largest single amount ever to graduate. {{more}}
The events organized by VINSA will be held throughout the months of July and August 2004.
VINSA represents over 130 students studying various subject areas, from medicine to computer science, at universities throughout the Socialist Republic of Cuba.
Among the activities VINSA plans to commemorate are:
1. A visit to the School for Children with Special Needs where they would take gifts collected from the student body.
2. A summer Spanish course that will be held from August 9 to 20. This summer programme will be geared toward the general public and will be hosted in Kingstown; the venue will be published later.
3. A dinner, culture show and prize-giving ceremony on August 21, 2004 at the Methodist Church Hall with tickets available for a contribution of $25.
VINSA President Angella Jackson, who is already home on vacation, says she is looking forward to the support of the general public and especially other past students and their relatives.
