The fifth President of the University of the Virgin Islands Dr. David Hall was inducted Wednesday as an honorary member of the Rotary Club of St. Thomas II at the club’s weekly meeting at Marriott Frenchman’s Reef.

In his remarks, Dr. Hall expressed his belief in the values of truth, fairness and integrity, which he said are also the cornerstones of what the University strives to instill in its students.

“When I think about UVI and the values of this organization I find that there is a great synergy and connection,” he said. “I will do my best to uphold the honor that you have bestowed upon me.”

Dr. Hall thanked the Rotarians for their past support and asked them to lend their leadership, their ideas and their resources to the University in the future.
