KINGSTOWN – A Memorandum of Understanding on Educational Support between The West Indies Players' Association and The St Vincent and The Grenadines Community College was signed yesterday.
Vice-president of WIPA Nixon McLean and SVGCC director Nigel Scott signed on behalf of the two institutions.
The MOU establishes a platform to build a relationship between WIPA and SVGCC in the effort of contributing to the personal development of West Indian cricketers.
SVGCC will facilitate the enrolment of WIPA members that are interested in furthering their education at the institution.
Currently, SVGCC offers educational programmes including CAPE, CSEC and Associate
Degrees and Bachelor’s Degrees.
"WIPA is pleased to join forces with The St Vincent and The Grenadines Community College. We are committed to creating opportunities for cricketers to advance their education and this agreement is reflective of that very commitment," McLean said.
Scott said SVGCC was delighted to collaborate on the initiative.
As the premiere public post-secondary institution in the country, we take our responsibility to be a leader in the thrust of national development seriously. We believe that this initiative will help to further the cause of national and regional development and greatly assist our cricketers in being
more balanced individuals and we are pleased to be a part of it," he said.
