Meet the Winner of the 2016 Young Alumni Achievement Award
Congratulations to Petrus Gumbs '09, of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, for receiving the 2016 Young Alumni Award. Winners of this award show remarkable achievements early in their careers and demonstrate commitment to the Benedictine values through service to the community. Petrus has certainly done that!
Combining his teaching knowledge (he attended Teacher College in St. Vincent and the Grenadines before attending St. Scholastica) and his CSS degree in Computer Information Systems, he created and now runs the STEM Summer Camp at St. Martin's Secondary School. Practical, engaging opportunities like this are crucial to the country's workforce, and help underrepresented students pursue STEM careers. Way to go Petrus, and thank you!
