Themed as The Builders’ Celebration Show, the dinner saw declarations and presentations to ‘The Foremen’- the late Mr Obed M. Malone, ‘The Contractor’- Mrs Eugenie Donovan-Glasgow, ‘The Labourer’- Mrs Kirlin T. Lettsome, and ‘The Mason’- Gordon J. D. Callender.

Hosting the evening were Kareem-Nelson Hull of the class of 1995 and Mrs Kenisha Sprauve of the class of 1993 and PTA President.

Present at the event were former Premier and Leader of the Opposition Honourable Ralph T. O’Neal OBE, and Mrs Edris O’Neal, Leader of the Opposition and Chairman of the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) Honourable Julian Fraser RA (R3) and Mrs Kharid Fraser, Minister for Education and Culture Honourable Myron V.

    Congratulations to the former educators. Your stalwart performance didn't go unnoticed. I have had the privilege to work with two of you in the persons of Mr. Calendar as my principal (boss) and Mrs. Lettsome as my college advisor. From both of you, I have learned well and I cherish the experience and knowledge that you afforded. Thank you guys and congratulations.
