To'abaita student appointed as USP student rep in Fiji Tourism Advisory Board
One of TARD's principal objectives is to publize and promote personal achievements that our students have attained. The anticipated outcome is that such excellence and attainment will contribute to the restoration of a good image to the North Malaita region, which has been tarnished by recent happenings as a result of criminal activities that originate from that region in the Solomon Islands. In addition, we believe that by appreciating student achievements, it would stimulate and empower students to work hard and excel in their endeavours.
Therefore, we are pleased to congratulate one of our To'abaita students and active TARD member, Mrs Joyce Konafilia Maetoloa, for her recent outstanding achievment at the University of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji. Joyce was appointed on friday by the Head of the USP Tourism Department Dr. Tracy Berno and Hospitality Lecturer Dawn Gibson, as the student representative into their management committee, which consequently led to her appointment as the USP student representative in the Fiji Tourism Advisory Board. She will attend the first Fiji Tourism Advisory Board
meeting next week Friday in Nadi.
"I see this as an opportunity to interact with the tourism industry top shots and discovering opportunities for tourism projects and developments for our part of Malaita", said Mrs Maetoloa.
Joyce is a tourism and hospitality student at the University of the South Pacific's main Laucala Campus. She is part To'abaita and Renbel and hails from the Malu'u area in North Malaita.
