Kayrel Edwards a current Chemistry PhD candidate at McGill University in Montreal Quebec, Canada, and a past student of St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College (SVGCC) has made a generous donation to the institution. The donation came in the form nine lab coats that will go to the Biology and Chemistry students of the college.
Edwards in commenting on the donation said “I have noticed that when students have easy access to materials such as lab coats, goggles, books and other laboratory equipment, learning becomes much easier for them. Through the generous donation of the Chemistry Department at McGill I was able to procure lab coats to donate to students in St. Vincent & the Grenadines.”
Deputy Director of the SVGCC, Dr. Karen Thomas, expressed gratitude for the donation by commending Edwards on “demonstrating a strong community spirit by giving back to the institution and to the community.”
Edwards is also calling on other alumni to pay it forward by making similar contributions to the institution.
