West Indies leg-spinner Samuel Badree graduated last week with an Executive Masters in Sport Management from the University of Trinidad and Tobago.
Badree now joins another active player, Chadwick Walton, who last October, earned a Sports Science and Marketing Masters degree, jointly run by Canada’s University of New Brunswick and the University of West Indies campus at Cave Hill in Barbados.
Badree, who is currently employed by the Ministry of Education as a Curriculum Officer, Physical Education and Sport, was very pleased to have completed the programme.
“I have always seen both sport and education as vehicles that can be used for upward social mobility and I have been able to use both to accomplish some of my life’s dreams. I have always advocated the complementary relationship between sport and education and today I am proud that I have been able to strike a balance between the two.”
Badree, who is currently competing in the Bangladesh Premier League, was unable to attend the Graduation Ceremony held at the UTT O’Meara Campus.
