Just as the University of Belize under the leadership of Professor Emeritus Clement Sankat is forging a new path forward, I encourage you to do the same as you begin your lives post- the University of Belize... Let your goals and objectives be to go to higher heights. Let your work be so diligent to achieve those goals and objectives and go beyond what those goals and objectives are. Do so in a timely manner. The rest of Belize is depending on your leadership.
