The event recognised students from all levels from the largest Faculty at Cave Hill. Several of the prizes awarded were also named in honour of stalwarts of the department, such as the George Belle (former Dean of the Faculty) award for the most outstanding student in Political Science, the Maxine McClean (former Lecturer in the Department of Management Studies) plaque for a top-performing student in the Bachelors programme in Management (Marketing) and the Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial (Nobel-award winning economist and former Vice Chancellor of The UWI) prize in the BSc in Economics and Accounting. Accounting and Finance undergraduate student, Musa Degia, copped Undergraduate Student of the Year after earning the highest Grade Point Average (GPA) in his department and the entire Faculty.

Ashlee Haynes received Graduate Student of the Year in the Department of Management Studies. She pursued an MSc in Marketing.

A former student in the MSc in Building and Construction programme, Horace King, was honoured posthumously for his encouragement and motivation to the 2016-2018 cohort.

In her remarks, head of the Department of Government, Sociology, Social Work and Psychology, Dr Wendy Grenade encouraged the students to “dream new dreams” and imagine new possibilities as they become the “next generation of Caribbean leaders.” She added that certification is insufficient without emotional intelligence, and urged them to allow “service and sacrifice to be hallmarks” of their humanity.

This message was underscored by head of the Management Studies department, Dr. Dion Greenidge, who reminded students -- some of whom had completed their studies -- to help others and contribute positively to society.
