With the globally recognised brand Sandals in the midst of celebrating its 30th anniversary, Sandals Resorts International (SRI) chairman Gordon 'Butch' Stewart and his deputy chairman son Adam launched the Sandals Corporate University (SCU) in fine style at Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort Wednesday last.

The quest to better the lives of the Sandals staff and Caribbean people, with education as the nucleus, will see SCU costing US$5-million and campuses established on each of Sandals' 20 resort properties across the region. The impressive launch, complete with a parade of flags, a stirring medley of songs from the Kencot Youth Choir, addresses from Prime Ministers Portia Simpson Miller of Jamaica, Baldwin Spencer of Antigua & Barbuda, Hubert Ingraham of The Bahamas and the guest speaker Kenny Anthony, Prime Minister of St Lucia, was comfortably handled by Wayne Cummings, director, business process and administration, who performed master-of-ceremonies duties.
