St. Maarten News – Four of the six participants in the first journalism course hosted by Scell received their certificates on Monday evening. Two other participants need some more time due to work-related issues. They are currently doing assignments with instructor Wendie Brown and will receive their certificates as soon as the assignments are completed and graded.
The four who received their certificates this week are Cornelius “Minister Salt” Marie, Charity Dunker, Nzinga Lake and Cavinna Browne Lyndon.
The journalism course began in August of last year and took sixteen weeks. The six participants received a scholarship for the course. Brown taught them the key principles and theories of journalism, media and reporting.
The scholarship was established with a Memorandum of Understanding signed by five parties: the University of St. Martin (under President Francio Guadeloupe), Bureau Telecommunication and Post (director Anthony Carty), the Biz Center of the Chamber of Commerce (Giselle York), the Chamber of Commerce (director Claret Connor) and Member of Parliament Tamara Leonard.
