A Word From Our President
Summer is Here!
Summer is here and we are exposed to more sunshine, giving us a chance to soak up its natural power which produces vitamin D. This vitamin helps boost our moods and can be incredibly beneficial for our health. While some foods can help keep our levels up, there is nothing that quite compares with the sun’s warmth on skin. 
However, summer does come with some drawbacks as well – higher temperatures make it harder for the body to maintain an internal balance causing fatigue in many people. Despite this though, most people still associate this time of the year with fun due to school holidays or office breaks; light clothing such as shorts or dresses become popular choices during these months so people don’t overheat while they enjoy outdoor activities like picnics or beach visits.
Additionally, fruits such as mangoes and pineapples ripen during this season making them great additions for any meal plan.
The summer brings brighter and longer days, which exposes the beauty of nature; the grass is green and flowers are in bloom. I hope that everyone finds a rewarding balance between work and leisure. Let the summer be a time for reflection, renewal and giving thanks.
All-in-all summer presents itself as a beautiful time of year where you get ample opportunity not only take advantage of all its nutritional benefits but also have plenty of fun experiences outdoors that will last long after the season has ended.
Blessings to the families, members and friends of TnTGA

Deante Taylor and Tyrone Smith
T&T Scholars at Howard University Attain Highest GPAs
After receiving the best grades possible in their computer science coursework, two T&T students graduated at the top of Howard University’s College of Engineering and Architecture.
Deante Taylor, 23, and Tyrone Smith, 22, now have positions as software engineers at tech behemoths Amazon and Google, respectively, thanks to their accomplishments. They are currently working on a “pipeline” initiative that will assist other T&T citizens in obtaining internships in the US.
At the graduation ceremony held in Washington, DC, the two young men were presented with diplomas alongside US President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley.
Taylor shared, “Essentially at Howard, the highest grade point average (GPA) you can have is a 4.0 which is essentially a perfect GPA, and Tyrone and I both achieved this grade.”
In addition to pursuing their professional goals, they intend to further the “pipeline” initiative, which has already sent five students and their families to the US for internships, in the hopes that it would open up additional chances for other T&T nationals.
