Meaning of the Logo

In 1990, a draft of a logo for the College was fine-tuned by local artist Reuben Vanterpool, in consultation with its first Registrar, Mrs. Eileen Lucia Parsons and the College’s founder, Honourable Chief Minister Hamilton Lavity Stoutt. The logo reflects elements of nature and the local way of life that portrayed the purpose and vision for the tertiary level institution. The sun represents the glory of the Caribbean sun that will forever rise each day over the people of the Territory. The bird, a sea-gull, illustrates the heights to which the College would take the people through the education and training that would be available to them while, sailing off into the distance the boat, a traditional Virgin Island sloop, portrays the failing background of a past way of life throughout the Territory. Green and gold, the colours of the logo would become the colours of the College, as they represent the sunny climate and green hillsides that are characteristic of the community that would be primarily served by the College.
