Rozann earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, with a concentration in Management and Labour Relations.

Rozann is the 1st and only Vincentian Student to attend CSU.

During her four years at university, Rozann was placed on the Dean’s List of Honours every semester. She received many awards, including the 2007 Rain Maker award, Outstanding Co-op Student for 2009 and the Rotary Club Outstanding Award for Senior Excellence in Management & Labour Relations. Rozann is a member of the Golden Key Honour Society, as well as the Beta Gamma Sigma Honour Society which recognizes outstanding students in the field of Business. Membership is obtained by invitation only.

Beginning in August, Rozann plans to take her education further by attending graduate school to read for a Master’s Degree in Health Care Administration. Her excellent academic performance has earned her a full time scholarship in the form of a Graduate Assistantship, which will enable her to pursue her goals.

Eventually, Rozann hopes to be able to use her qualifications to improve the healthcare system in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, which will benefit all Vincentians.

Rozann is grateful to her entire family, friends and loved ones, who have inspired and supported her throughout the years.
