The University of the Virgin Islands (UVI) extends condolences to the family, friends and the Government and People of St. Kitts and Nevis on the passing of former Premier of Nevis Vance Amory.   

Amory served Nevis as Premier for two terms in the office – from 1992 to 2006 and from 2013 to 2017.   

The University of the Virgin Islands was delighted to host him in September 1986 when he decided to further his studies with a master’s in business administration at the St. Croix Campus before dedicating his life to the betterment of Nevis.   

“The passing of Vance is a monumental loss to the people of St. Kitts and Nevis and the wider Caribbean,” said UVI President David Hall. “We consider it a blessing that some of the myriad talents of such a visionary Caribbean man were cultivated here in the Virgin Islands and shared with numerous beneficiaries across the region and the globe. The region will feel the magnitude of his loss, but has benefited from his insight, passion and now a lasting legacy.”
