Yesterday, I presented 2 full 4-year scholarships in the name of the Richard F. Kirwan Scholarship Fund under the auspices of the Rotary Club of St. Thomas. The ceremony was part of the Honors Presentations of Charlotte Amalie High School.
WAPA failed at about 8 p.m. The students present were spectacular. Instead of going into panic mode, they, the student body, unprompted and as a group, began to sing a spiritual accompanied by the waving of the mini lights of their cell phones and joined by the very young musicians on stage. It was both inspiring and a testament to the superb graduating honor students of the class of 2006.
I was never more proud to be a Virgin Islander and was thrilled to see the excellence and demeanor of this class. Congratulations class of 2006! You are very special.
