Mandeville, Manchester- The United Student Movement’s (USM) Projects Team in collaboration with the International Students’ Association (ISA) executed a successful Campus Clean-Up initiative on Friday, March 12, 2021.

The day’s activities included an aggressive beautification drive on the Northern Caribbean University’s Main Campus in Mandeville, which saw volunteers weeding, raking and de-bushing.

USM Director of Projects and Special Initiatives, Latoya Carnagie told the Hilltop Trumpet that the initiative was orchestrated under the theme, ‘Be apart of the solution, not the pollution.’

“Approximately 30 students came out to help us beautify the campus, including the Club Presidents. We worked from the RH Gazebo all the way down to the Gazebo behind Cedar Hall. We raked, picked up bottles, removed old boards and anything that was out of place.”

Carnagie, who also served as Associate Director in the 2019-2020 regime, also commended all the volunteers who participated and said she hopes the initiative will be carried on by the incoming regime.

Associate Director of the Projects Sector, Che’Obrien McDermott noted that he was not able to attend but commended the initiative and encouraged students to keep the environment clean.

Meanwhile, ISA President, Khrystophe Rolle told our news team, that he was amazed by the support received by students, noting that the group started out small.

“I had suspected that the numbers would be small…but I was amazed throughout the day as the minutes passed that the numbers started to grow and there were a lot of familiar faces. I saw Alumni, lecturers, students coming out and putting their best efforts to make this initiative a success.”

The Campus Clean-Up started at 9 am and ended at 1 pm.

Also, Present were a few of the Candidates in the USM ongoing elections.
