Congrats to these impressive students from our Malcolm Baldrige School of Business.

Ronnica Bartley, Manchester, Jamaica – Ronnica is pursuing her BS degree in Business Administration and Legal Studies. She is a self-driven academic scholar who has been recognized for her achievements in management, campus participation, GPA and leadership. She has been serving the children of her community as a teacher, mentor and advisor, while taking an active role in various Post organizations and clubs. “Life doesn’t always go as planned, so keep life’s surprises in your plan,” she says. “Make the small steps and set-backs worth the effort by getting back up again.”
