‘You made my dream possible’: First Rickert Allen scholar tells UCC, NCB

Nadian Whyte is closer to her dream of attaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Networking and Cybersecurity and working in her chosen field thanks to the inaugural University of the Commonwealth Caribbean/National Commercial Bank (UCC/NCB) Dr Rickert Allen Scholarship she received in 2021.

The youngest of seven children for parents of modest means, Nadian credits hard work at secondary school and prayers for the fateful advisory from UCC and the NCB Foundation which confirmed that she would be the first recipient of the scholarship named for the late Dr Rickert Allen, a former president of the UCC and past head of NCB Group’s human resources and facilities division.
