Galen Eagles sweeps basketball competition across the border

It was a big weekend for Galen, as on the heels of graduation the university also welcomed back its triumphant heroes, the Galen Eagles. The well regarded basketball team just returned from a tournament in Bacalar in which it trashed its competition and emerged victorious. And if that isn’t enough good news for Galen, the Eagles band is reportedly doing big things at CARIFESTA. A very proud president Louis Zabaneh told News Five that it’s all about letting our youths know that we are there for them.

“Over the weekend the basketball team returned from a tournament in Bacalar and really did a great job…they won the tournament. At the same time we have the Galen Eagles band representing us in Suriname at CARIFESTA and the preliminary reports are that they are winning the hearts and minds of many out in that festival. So both the band and basketball team are doing a wonderful job representing Belize.  We have great people in Belize, and once our young people are given the support, facilitated where they know that people care for them and we do the best we can with the limited resources we have they do great things. In fact both with the band and the basketball team as with other things that we do on campus with clubs and so on, we try our very best to let these young people know that they can do great things. We give them the facilitation for it and they in fact do great things.”

 

At the graduation ceremony, an honorary doctorate was bestowed on prominent Belizean credit union figure Jane Usher. She joins Doctor Rene Villanueva Senior and Doctor Godwin Hulse as distinguished honorees.
