(Cleveland, Tennessee)… Bahamian students enrolled in Lee University in Tennessee got the opportunity to socialize with Consul General Randy E. Rolle plus Culture and Student Affairs Officer Robert Pinder. The students were elated to meet the team, whose Atlanta-based office includes Tennessee within their jurisdiction.
“It was heartwarming to meet these dynamic young Bahamians who are representing our nation as student ambassadors,”
“Overall, it was very candid and informal but at the same time extremely informative,”
“The social brought clarity to the many Bahamian students we have here within the jurisdiction and it was refreshing to see the unity displayed among the students,” added Pinder. “We got to see some familiar faces, including the daughters of Hon. Shane Gibson, Minister of Labor. The students were all very excited about what we have to offer them. As we told them, we look forward to the partnering them, and want them to partner with us. Young people have good ideas and innovative approaches to some of the challenges we face as a nation. Despite being abroad, they still are looking for solutions to things we encounter at home so that our country will be on the fast track to success.”
