Northern Caribbean University’s (NCU’s) 2017 graduating class was charged to lead a life of volunteerism, by Assistant Pastor at the NCU Church, Obed Babb.

“No NCU Graduate should ever be unemployed—volunteer!  It’s by volunteering that you sharpen the proverbial axe.”

He was speaking at the Consecration service, on Friday, which formed part of the university’s Graduation activities. 

Pastor Babb explained that by giving back to the society freely, persons are also able to improve their skills.

“If you are a scientist, volunteer in a lab and discover something. Nurses can never be unemployed when numerous communities are filled with elderly persons who are ‘shut-ins’ (at home) who can do well with some nurses there.  Volunteer!”

He also encouraged the graduating class to use their skills to assist uncertified entrepreneurs to maximize their profit and to find possible solutions to the upsurge of crime and violence in the country, which he says may be a result of mental health problems.

The theme for this year’s graduation activities was, Mission Possible: Moving Forward.  As such, Pastor Babb, encouraged the Class of 2017 to remain true to God as it was only through His will that they were able to successfully complete their programmes of study.

“It didn’t always seem possible, coming, remaining and graduating from NCU, but this evening your presence here is irrefutable evidence that the mission is possible. With God the mission is always possible,” said Pastor Babb.

NCU graduation actives were held on the university’s main campus in Mandeville from August 11 to 13.
