I extend heartiest congratulations to the class of 2015 on behalf of the Ministry of Education and Culture and admonish you first to be thankful for what you have achieved here at HLSCC, and second, to continue on the path of success. Graduates, you deserve every bit of pomp and circumstance that you will have today and I encourage you to soak up the moment as we celebrate you and your success.

It is an honour and a privilege for me as your Governor to officiate at this formal ceremony to hear the oaths and affirmations by the new Premier and Ministers of the new government of the Virgin Islands.
It gives me great pleasure to deliver the 2015 World Environment Day Address for this World Environment Day. World Environment Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972, and first celebrated in 1973. Since then it has been hosted each year by different cities and it serves as a period in which several initiatives are introduced and implemented or others may be recognized for their sustainable benefit to our region.
In May 2015 the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association British Islands and Mediterranean Region (CPA BIMR) were officially invited by The Governor, His Excellency John S. Duncan OBE to deploy an Election Observation Mission to the Virgin Islands (UK) to observe the June general elections. This invitation was supported by the Government and the official Opposition.
