The President of Guyana has been invited to deliver the keynote address at a Brooklyn college awards ceremony next month.
President David Granger is to address the 2nd Annual International Education Awards Ceremony at Medgar Evers college on April 27.
President Granger follows Prime Minister of Trinidad & Tobago, Dr. Keith Rowley, who delivered the keynote address at the inaugural International Education Awards Ceremony last May.
The event recognizes the outstanding support of key community members for international studies at Medgar Evers – which has a very active study abroad program.
With its current student population representing 94 nations and 44 languages, Medga Evers’ study abroad program is a critical component of its educational offerings. Program estimations include Australia, China, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, France, Grenada, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Panama, Spain and Trinidad & Tobago.
In conjunction with President Granger’s visit and the awards ceremony, there will also be a VIP Reception that serves as a fundraiser to support study abroad scholarships for Medgar Evers’ students.
President Granger’s last visit to New York was in September 2016, when he met with members of the Guyana Mission, and spoke about investment opportunities in Guyana up and coming green economy.
