The Governor’s Office and the Royal Commonwealth Society are pleased to announce that Montserratian Tiffannie Skerritt has been selected to participate in the first ever “33FIFTY” leadership programme for young Commonwealth leaders aged 18 to 25. The programme will take place in Scotland immediately prior to the Commonwealth Games to be held in Glasgow during this summer.
The programme is to be delivered by the Royal Commonwealth Society and Common Purpose, a leadership development organisation, as part of the legacy educational programme for the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Miss Skerritt, a student of the Montserrat Community College, will spend a week in Glasgow and Edinburgh in Scotland in July and will be exposed to leadership skills to help in studies, careers and civic life. She will also be given access to global networks and an alumni of Commonwealth citizens exposing her to the cultural intelligence to enable her thrive in multiple cultures.
His Excellency the Governor, Mr Adrian Davis has personally congratulated Miss Skerritt on her selection to this very prestigious programme and has announced that his office will contribute to the travel costs of getting her to Scotland. Recently she was selected to be the Montserrat youth to sign the Commonwealth Youth Book that accompanied the Commonwealth Games Baton on its round the world tour and this book will become part of the 33FIFTY activities in Scotland.
