They had earlier visited Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College in Miami, Oklahoma, where they discussed more opportunities for Bahamian students to pursue music at Northeastern A&M with Mr. Adam Compton, Instrumental Music Instructor. Consul General Rolle said, “Having the opportunity to watch such a sensational Bahamian college basketball star in action was just amazing. We had the opportunity to sit with him before the game. He spoke about school, family and basketball. I was blown away by his personality and how grounded he is as a young Bahamian. His Mother, I am told, is an amazing woman and makes sure he stays focused. As we sat down to chat, he noticed that we were wearing Bahamian pins and said he wants one, so Mia Ferguson took off her pin and gave it to him and he wore it at the post-game press conference.”
