Charlie Kirkconnell Recognised for CEC’s Commitment to supporting UCCI’s Technology-Driven Programming.
Roy Bodden, President of The University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI), presented Charlie Kirkconnell, CEO of Cayman Enterprise City (CEC), with the President’s Medal at the 1 November 2018 Commencement Ceremony held in Sir Vassel Johnson Hall. The award was given in recognition of CEC’s longstanding and on-going commitment to supporting UCCI’s technology-driven programmes in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
The President’s Medal is an award nominated by the UCCI President and approved by its Board of Governors which is designed to honour special contributors and benefactors for supporting the growth and development of the institution. The award was the final award given by President Bodden before newly appointed Dr. Stacy R. McAfee takes on the role of UCCI President in January 2019. The award was one of only three President’s Medals awarded by President Bodden during his tenure, which began in 2009.
“CEC, through your leadership, has demonstrated a commitment and resolve in preparing and equipping current and future generations in pursing creative careers in STEM,” said President Bodden. “Your generous monetary sponsorships, and hands-on involvement, in UCCI’s STEM initiatives – the STEM Carib Conferences, the STEM Ambassador’s Programme and last, but not least, the STEM Summer Camp – has made it all the more possible in providing the all-encompassing platforms for attendees to learn, connect and stay updated on the ever-changing landscape of our technology-based society.”
