"The UVI Alumni Association has taken time out to publicly thank whole heartedly those unsung heroes for the work they are performing, and we want to let them know that the work that they are doing is highly commendable," says the association's executive body. "They are making a big difference in our community and the world. We all say a big thank you, and we ask you to continue your work because this community would be at a loss without your efforts."
