The Student Activities Center on UVI’s St. Thomas Campus was abuzz with action on Thursday, Feb. 27, as the Student Government Association (SGA) hosted a Black History Month Expo and Presentation Competition. Various student groups choose remarkable individuals to honor at their informational tables. Chosen were: reigning Miss UVI Murchtricia Charles – by the Queen’s Committee, radio personality Addie Ottley – by the Rotaract Club, former and current UVI presidents, Drs. LaVerne Ragster and David Hall – by the SGA main table, Bob Marley – by the St. Kitts and Nevis Association, the late Nicholas “Daddy” Friday – by the Carnival Committee, and poet Maya Angelou – by the Alpha Kappa Sorority. (Click on photos for larger view.)
