Minister of Culture Rene Baptiste, in her address to the students, said that “History and heritage are two things we have to carve out for us to know our identity.” She encouraged the students to research their heritage and promised that the Ministry of Culture will partner with them to embrace their culture.

While delivering his speech, Guest Speaker Ronnie Daniel told the students that it’s up to them to shape their history. “You need to know who we are as a people,” he said.(VM)
