Education Coordinator, Eden Leonard, was thrilled to accept on behalf of World Ocean School, the award for Best Maritime Education in the Virgin Islands. The award comes from the Reader's Choice polls of the Daily News and is an annual award. While there certainly are not a lot of maritime education programs in the Virgin Islands, there are a few and we are happy to be noted among them.
The educational program season in St. Croix is wrapping up but so far has served over 700 island students through the public school seventh-grade program as well as programs for various grades at other public and private island schools. After four years of serving students in St. Croix, Roseway programs are becoming more well known and the demand for them is growing. Next year we hope to keep improving the work we are doing and continue to live up to the award we've been giving.
