United Insurance has once again provided support to the students of the T.A. Marryshow Community College, as they travel to Barbados to undertake internships at The Crane Resort.
When the thirty-eight (38) students of the College make the trip to Barbados to further their studies, they do so without worry thanks to United Insurance.
This is because United Insurance, for the third consecutive year, has donated the travel insurance which provides full coverage for the group of students on their trip to Barbados, May 3 to August 7, 2013.
The students are part of the Tourism and Hospitality programmes at the Community College and will graduate in July with Associate degrees in their areas of specialty, when this aspect of their programme is completed.
“We are indeed pleased to assist with the development of youth in Grenada by ensuring that these young people and their parents can have peace of mind as they travel to Barbados to complete their studies. It is our way of giving back to the community that supports us,” noted Trevor Renwick, local representative for United Insurance.
Merlisia John, Chair of the Tourism & Hospitality Department, thanked the Company for its continued contribution to the internship and for the sense of security and relief provided to all parties involved.
United Insurance Company Limited also supports the development of youth in Grenada through their annual sponsorship of the Secondary School Cricket Competition of which they have been the proud sponsor throughout the OECS for more than 25 years.
United Insurance Company Ltd is a member of the Neal & Massy Group of Trinidad & Tobago.
The thirty-eight second-year students of TAMCC have already left the island to begin their internship at the Crane Residential Resort.
The students were selected from the following programmes: Hospitality Studies, Culinary Arts, Electronics Engineering Technology and Refrigeration & Air conditioning Technology.
While on the internship, the students will have the opportunity to gain certification through the internationally recognised American Hotel and Lodging Association examinations.
The College and students have been raising funds to support this programme. Last month a gala dinner was held for corporate Grenada. Currently, a raffle is being promoted for a three-night stay for two at the luxurious Crane Resort (inclusive of airline tickets).
The students and College administration wishes to express its gratitude to the public and private sector organizations for their support of the internship programme.
All students within the School of Applied Arts & Technology are required to complete an internship in order to graduate.
The Crane Internship will run from May 3 until August 6, 2013. This is the third year of TAMCC/Crane Resort partnership.
