Cayman Chapter Announces Benefit Concert
The first annual Cayman Islands Good Samaritan benefit concert to aid families across the Cayman Islands adversely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic takes place on Saturday, September 26, 2020, at 7:30 pm, at Kings Seventh-day Adventist Church, located on Walkers Road.
The donations gathered at the charge-free benefit concert, organised by the Northern Caribbean Alumni Association Cayman Chapter (NCU ACKy), will be applied to community-wide needs, regardless of affiliations.
Performers at the concert will include well known artistes such as the Williams Quintet, Michele T, J-Prophet, Sebert Bramwell, Quincy Brown, Shantoya Garwood, and the ACKy Folk Choir.
While offering the community at large some relaxation in this evening of drama and music, the event offers an opportunity for any member of the public to share a little with others whose livelihoods have been adversely impacted by the pandemic. Attendees are invited to bring a generous offering in lieu of a door charge and any food items they may wish to contribute.
Interested members of the public or companies are invited to contribute also by contacting the Good Samaritan Pantry, c/o , 325-9917. Mrs. Shirlene Henriques, retired Health Services Authority administrator and a former director of Community Services for the Adventist Church and part of the Hurricane Ivan National Hurricane Response team, continues to be active in services to the community, regardless of affiliation of persons needing aid.
A registration form, which will also be available at the event, is accessible here or by contacting Mrs. Henriques.

NCU Achieves Institutional Accreditation Status
DR. LINCOLN EDWARDS, president of Northern Caribbean University (NCU), has announced the attainment of institutional accreditation status from the University Council of Jamaica (UCJ) effective February 17, 2018, for a period of seven years initially.
The NCU President made the announcement during a press conference at the university’s main campus in Mandeville on Thursday, December 6, 2018.
The most significant aspect of gaining Institutional Accreditation Status, Dr. Edwards said, is that Northern Caribbean University now has the authority, ability and capacity to develop and offer degree programmes without the need for approval from the UCJ.
Dr. Edwards said that Northern Caribbean University is the second tertiary education institution operating in Jamaica to enjoy institutional accreditation status.
