Fantastic Voyagers Land in St. Thomas

Radio personality Tom Joyner brought his 2010 Fantastic Voyage cruise ship tour to St. Thomas on Thursday, May 20, and was greeted by UVI mocko jumbies – alum Rick Grant (09), at left, and Physics Professor Dr. David Smith. The cruise, sponsored by the Tom Joyner Foundation as a “Party with a Purpose” helps to raise scholarship funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities. UVI students, faculty and staff were on hand to welcome the more than 3,000 passengers who spent the day shopping and taking island outings. Below, Tom Joyner Jr. buys UVI t-shirts and caps at the UVI Bookstore tent which was set up at the Havensight Mall dock. Shown with Joyner Jr. are Bookstore Manager Mervin Taylor and Faye Liburd.
