Thursday, February 19, 2015 marked a great day for Caribbean tourism education with the official launch of Contemporary Caribbean Tourism: Concepts and Cases, a book written by Drs. Sherma Roberts, Mechelle Best and Acolla Lewis-Cameron and published by Ian Randle Publishers, Jamaica.
The publication represents a notable contribution to the Caribbean tourism industry in general and Caribbean tourism education in particular and is expected to become the ‘go to’ text for academics in the field.
The occasion was made that much more special as three CHTM alumni were forefront in the proceedings.
Dr. Mechelle Best completed her BSc. degree in Hotel Management at CHTM in 1995 and is currently Associate Professor and Graduate Coordinator in the Department of Recreation & Tourism Management at California State University – Northridge.
Dr. Acolla Lewis-Cameron completed her BSc. degree in Tourism Management at CHTM in 1996 and is currently Lecturer in Tourism and Hospitality Management at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine campus.
Also on hand at the celebration of publication, held in Barbados, was feature speaker Dr. Andrew Spencer (BSc. Tourism Management, 2003) currently Head of Department and Director of CHTM.
