Hon. Karen E. Malcolm
Minister of Education, Youth, Culture and Library Services.
On behalf of the Government of the Turks and Caicos Islands, it is my pleasure to endorse and give support to the relaunch of the website for the Turks and Caicos Islands Community College, our home-grown institution; grown in the sand, preserved by the salt and nurtured by the dedication and devotion of our educators.
In this the twenty-fifth year of the establishment of the Turks and Caicos Islands Community College, in celebration of its Silver Jubilee, “…there she stands, a symbol of truth and courage….’ This institution now demonstrates that little can be much when there is total commitment and dedication to preservation.
Each of the twenty-five years of its existence, this institution has witnessed unique triumphs; each year has incredible stories to tell. The accomplishments far exceeded the expectations of many, and yet ‘we rise’. Today, I stand proudly with more than two thousand two hundred alumni who have benefitted from an education at our ‘home-grown institution’. The success can be attributed to the commitment, hard work and dedication of students and many remarkable educators whose complete devotion to education prevailed against many odds.
This relaunch signals yet another significant milestone in the life of TCICC – Daring to Aspire, Determined to Succeed! This website provides useful information to our various publics, including our students, our parents, and persons from other countries who might consider the tranquil isles of the Turks and Caicos Islands as an ideal place to pursue further education.
As your Minister of Education, I am committed to ensuring that the provision of education here in the Turks and Caicos Islands, specifically tertiary education at the Turks and Caicos Islands Community, is second to none. It is my fervent wish that this website connects well with all our people, as we continue to expand our offerings at the TCICC.
Congratulations! Happy Silver Jubilee, TCICC!
On firm foundation, there she stands
Symbol of strength and courage.
A monument strong, a defender true.
The nation’s hope restoring….
The Turks and Caicos Islands Community College
Daring to Aspire, Determined to Succeed!
