Staff Achievements
Mrs. Michelle Grandison-Taylor - Adminstrative Assistant 
The Department congratulates our Administrative Assistant Mrs. Michelle    Grandison-Taylor on Twenty Years of Excellence. Mrs. Grandison - Taylor joined The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, as a Stenographer/Clerk in 1998. Her first assignment was with the then Dean, Faculty of Humanities who is  now the Vice Chancellor of The University of the West Indies, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles.

Michelle is the only administrative staff member that can boast of working in all three departments of the Faculty of Social Sciences.  From 1998 – 2006  Michelle did just that and worked in the Department of Government, Sociology  and Social Work, the Department of Management Studies and the Department of Economics, gaining invaluable experience and understanding of university systems, procedures and protocols.
In 2006 she was promoted to the post of temporary Administrative Assistant to the Open Campus where she stayed for two years. In 2008, Michelle returned to the Department of Economics as the Administrative Assistant where she has remained  ever since.
Michelle says one of her greatest achievements at the UWI, was turning the once bare corridors and lobby area outside of the Department of Economics, into a "hall of achievement" for both students and staff. The walls are plastered with plaques and pictures of the most outstanding students and a nearby cabinet showcases a variety of staff awards.
Once again, we want to congratulate our Administrative Assistant, Mrs Michelle Grandison Taylor on providing us with ten years of excellent service and The University of the West Indies with twenty years of the same.
