Saint Lucia's Tourism Minister tells the 2011 graduating class of Monroe College, New York that St Lucia needs them. In his address spoke directly to those with St Lucian heritage, telling them "Come and help build and use your talent. Don't waste your energy on what you cannot change, but use all of your energy to change the things you can.
The Minister further encouraged them to be different in their endeavours and not be afraid to make mistakes.
The ceremony began with a traditional procession of faculty and staff and was followed by a parade of flags. The flags represent the international student body that takes classes at the New Rochelle campus of Monroe College.
