(UVIToday) – Amazing things are in store for recent UVI graduate and former viNGN intern Daricia Wilkinson! She’s in the spotlight on UVI’s blog for her perseverance and ongoing pursuit of excellence in the field of Information Systems and Technology. She’s on her way to graduate school at Clemson University in South Carolina where she will start a fully funded Ph.D. program in Human Centered Computing.We are proud of Ms. Wilkinson and grateful for the time she spent as one of our interns! As part of the University of the Virgin Islands Innovation Design and Entrepreneurship Association (UVIDEA) club she participated in UVI’s annual Hack a Thons, the opening of the UVI Innovation Center, and the launch of a 3D printer on both UVI campuses.


As busy as she was, Daricia also helped us to coordinate and host 3 Hour of Code sessions in our Public Computer Centers on St. Thomas (two at the Kirwan Terrace PCC and one at the Turnbull Library PCC) in 2015.

Congratulations Daricia – continue to soar!!!
