New High School Graduate for NCU
With an eye to medical research, Devaune Millwood, a 2021 graduate of John Gray High School, begins his bachelor’s degree in biological science this month (August 2021) at Northern Caribbean University (NCU) in Jamaica. Mr. Millwood junior said that he was inspired to go into the medical research field by his observation of the vast range of efforts that went into developing the vaccine to combat the Covid pandemic.
Supporting Mr. Millwood’s realisation of his dreams, the Cayman Chapter of the NCU Alumni Association announced today (August 9, 2021) a scholarship award to cover 50% of all costs for the 2021/22 academic year. The scholarship is initially for one year.
"The Chapter is delighted to support the educational advancement of a young man with such a sterling academic and extra-curricular record," said president of the Chapter Patricia Ebanks.
Mr. Millwood was selected by the Chapter’s scholarship committee. In recommending the young scholar, the chair of the three-member scholarship committee said: “We noted the academic accomplishments of Devaune as well as reports of his commendable attitude and resilience. We also considered the contribution of his parents to various aspects of life in our Islands.”
Devaune is the son of long-serving RCIPS officer Desmond Millwood and his wife Claudine, who has been serving as school nurse at Cayman Academy for the past three years.
The new awardee just topped up his two Year Ten passes--in English and math--with seven other CXC subjects sat during this most recent examination period to end Year Eleven at John Gray.
Devaune’s academic achievements were recognised in an array of awards in his “House” at John Gray in the May (2021) Award Ceremony. He received awards for “Achievement” in art, PE, mathematics, core science and EDPM (Electronic Document Preparation and Management), along with the award for “Excellence” in English language and for “Most Improved” in physics and English literature.
Devaune's goal is to ultimately qualify as a microbiologist, with the hope of fulfilling his interest in medical research.

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.
Jamaica's Minister of Education:
NCU’s Programme Should be Emulated
Education, Youth and Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, has hailed Northern Caribbean University’s (NCU) Restoring Every Student’s Confidence Using Education (RESCUE) programme as something worthy of emulation throughout the entire sector.
He was delivering the main address at NCU’s Alumni Homecoming Fundraising Banquet, held at Golf View Hotel in Mandeville, Manchester, on November 11, 2018.
