54-year-old Agriculture Worker obtains Bachelors degree with Distinction


Lolieta Spencer recently completed a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration with Distinction Honour at the University Ashworth College in Georgia in the United States of America at the age of 54.

This is her message to others:

21st July, 2019-To begin, I Lolieta Spencer, have been a humble servant at the Ministry of
Agriculture in the Cotton Division from 2008 to present.

I have been working extremely hard and place much interest into the areas of my
duties to uplift the standard of the Government of Antigua and Barbuda.

Over the years, I have trained numerous persons to include Clerks, Job
Programme Trainees and Fifth (5th) form students, especially from the Ottos
Comprehensive School.

It is always my greatest pleasure to share knowledge and guide the younger ones
on the journey to success.

In addition, I had a vision, and that was to elevate myself in an effort to raise
standard of living, so I pursued studies at Ashworth College in Georgia in the
United States of America.

The University years were challenging and difficult, but, despite the odds, I strive
extremely hard to be successful.

I set goals and usually meet deadlines, read Proverbs and give thanks to father

Also, I attend work daily and always on time, work through lunch breaks to get
the work done.

I must further state that I am so happy and honored to graduate with a Bachelor
of Science in Business Administration with Distinction Honor.

In essence, it is very important:

a. Spend my time wisely
b. Learn to appreciate
C. Prioritize at all times
d. Don’t let negative saying determine my destiny
e. Stay strong and always love faithfully

Finally, it is an awesome privilege for the confident and trust that Mrs. Bradford
place in me to oversee the running of the Cotton Division office, knowing that
duties are carried out in a professional manner at all times.

It is my greatest pleasure to be a part of the Agriculture family, God blessings to all.

Your Humble Servant,

Lolieta Spencer

Senior Clerk
