President Ragster Portrait Unveiled

Dr. LaVerne E. Ragster, fourth president of the University of the Virgin Islands, recently gathered with UVI President Dr. David Hall, members of the UVI Board of Trustees, as well as family and friends, at the unveiling of her portrait on the St. Thomas campus.

The oil painting, by well-known St. Thomas artist Shansi Miller, joins those of former UVI presidents Dr. Lawrence Wanlass, Dr. Arthur Richards, and Dr. Orville Kean, on the walls of the University's Administration and Conference Center.
