First TCI woman engineer graduates, FortisTCI & Family celebrates

Providenciales, 28 May 2015 – TeAndra Thomas not only completes five years of study and a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering from Memorial University in Newfoundland Canada, but she comes home to work at the company which sponsored her collegiate education, FortisTCI.

TeAndra today graduated at the MUN Arts and Culture Centre in Newfoundland and according to FortisTCI will be surrounded by family and friends as she is presented with her diploma.

The power company adds that, “What makes this achievement even more special is that TeAndra studied with a concentration in mechanical engineering, traditionally a male dominated field. At the young age of 23, TeAndra is now the first known female mechanical engineer from the Turks and Caicos Islands.”

A hearty congratulations to Miss Thomas, who is the daughter of Blythe Clare of the TCI Tourist Board. She said in a statement today, “Not only has it changed my life but it has afforded me the opportunity to impact the lives of others especially in the Turks and Caicos Islands. I wish to thank my family for their love and support throughout this journey and FortisTCI for the opportunity…”
