Our very own Kemit Amon-Lewis was recently honored by the US Virgin Islands for his outstanding contributions to marine science!

⁠⁠

The USVI Legislature’s committee on government operations and consumer protection will be hearing BN 34-0201 today in recognition of Kemit's service to the marine science industry and to the people of the Virgin Islands.

⁠⁠"Growing up on St. Croix had everything to do with my interest in the field of marine science, a career that has allowed me to see much of Earth’s oceans while working to make a difference. The lived-experience of being a Caribbean Islander first and a marine scientist second has given me a different perspective as I approach each issue and has informed each project and program developed to affect change. I am beyond humbled and honored that the career that I love dearly is being celebrated today."

Kemit-Amon Lewis is a marine scientist, environmental advocate, scuba diver, tennis player, choreographer, world traveler, photographer and pillar of the Virgin Islands community.
