First Flour Milling Silver Medallist from the Caribbean
CariScholar mentor and Vincentian national, Lanel Black, becomes the first nabim Flour Milling Silver Medallist from either the Caribbean or Latin America.
According to nabim’s training website, “nabim is the trade association and training organisation for the UK flour milling industry. Each year we run our modular correspondence courses to provide millers with an essential knowledge and understanding of flour milling”.
The silver medal award dates back to as far as 1929, when it was, at the time, awarded by the City and Guilds of London Institute. From 1992, nabim has awarded the Silver Medal annually “to the outstanding performer worldwide amongst those who have gained their Flour Milling Advanced Certificate that year”.
Lanel, a Quality Assurance Officer at the East Caribbean Group of Companies (ECGC), gained six (6) distinctions and one (1) credit from the seven (7) module course; the top performer worldwide, across all seven examination papers!
Lanel credits her success to being self-motivated, to the support of her mentor and supervisors at the East Caribbean Flour Mills (ECFM), and her peers in the nabim programme. She now hopes to attain the prestigious Gold Award, which requires her to write a thesis on a subject related to the modern flour milling industry.
CariScholar wishes to congratulate Ms Black on this outstanding achievement. She is certainly making her mark in the Flour Milling Industry, both regionally and internationally. We wish her continued success in her work and research!
