VI Governor John P. de Jongh, Jr., along with representatives from the Economic Development Authority and the Virgin Islands Department of Tourism, participated in in a USVI business development mission to Copenhagen, Denmark, from March 11 to 15. During his visit to Denmark, Governor de Jongh met with businesses leaders to promote the benefits of establishing operations in the USVI. He also met with the Danish tourism industry officials to increase the number of Danes visiting the USVI every year. The 100th anniversary of the transfer of the Danish West Indies to the United States will occur in 2017.
Robinson's poster, titled “Cultural Ray of Peace,” includes her original photos and poetry. She is no stranger when it comes to representing her home. She was crowned Miss St. Croix 2008-2009, Miss Virgin Islands 2010-2011, and represented the territory at the 2011 Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas. Her banner and works by fellow students Frances McIntosh, Felicia Emmanuel and Mary Josiah are among the original student art pieces hanging in the "Open-Up St. Croix" project this winter in the Caravelle Arcade. UVI student art was developed in Hatfield's Design 117 and ART/COM 324 courses. It can be viewed in windows at the north end of the Arcade. The St. Croix Chamber of Commerce and the business community sponsored the cost of materials used in the project by students.
