Dear Ms. Davis and Ms. Woodward:

Please accept a heartfelt thank you from the YWCA USVI for your support of our 2nd annual International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Girls in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) Day 2017 on Friday, April 21, 2017. We certainly achieved our goal of engaging girls (and boys) in potential ICT careers.

The event would not have been a success without your presentation on the VINGN network and the fiber- optic cable splicing demonstration.

Thank you once again for your support of the YWCA USVI Inc. We value your contribution towards our continued development as an organization dedicated to providing services to Women and Girls and their families in the US Virgin Islands. You have proven once again that you are an invaluable community partner in our ongoing endeavors.

We wish you every success as you continue to make a positive difference in our Virgin Island’s community.

Carol Callwood
President, YWCA USVI, Inc.
