The 60th Anniversary Charter Day program for the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI), celebrated on March 31, was enjoyable and enlightening.  

UVI celebrated six decades with student presentations, musical tributes, a rousing keynote address by Dr. Robert Franklin and UVI President Dr. David Hall made several announcements about the University’s plans to honor the late Dr. Athniel C. “Addie” Ottley. Dr. Yvonne E. L. Thraen was also honored as she transitions to the status of Trustee Emerita after more than 25 years of service to UVI.
