Dorothea Eileen Robinson was born on December 12, 1937 on the Dutch island of Aruba. She attended a Dutch elementary school until the 7th Grade. At that time, she transferred to Mandeville, Jamaica’s West Indies Training College, which is now known as Northern Caribbean University.

Because of her love for people and her desire to be of service, she decided to pursue a career in nursing. After five years in Jamaica, she migrated to the United States of America, where she enrolled at Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska for the pre-nursing course. She subsequently attended the College of Medical Evangelists, which is now the Loma Linda University School of Nursing, in Loma Linda, California. She graduated in 1962 with a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing.

In 1972, she received a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree from New York University’s School of Education. She subsequently taught in the Graduate Division of Nursing at the Boston University School of Nursing. Since 1979, she has served as the Secretary of the Byron Robinson Educational Foundation. In 2007, she received an Honorary Doctorate (D.Litt.) degree from Northern Caribbean University in 2007, in recognition of over 35 years of humanitarian and community service to individuals and institutions.

Dorothea has been very active at her church in various capacities. However, she has been most recognized over the years as a facilitator and nurturer of children and young people. She has been a children’s and youth choir director since 1988 and currently continues to volunteer in this capacity. She also works with the elderly, volunteering at a neighborhood nursing home facility once a week.

One of Dorothea’s education-related quotes comes from the writer Ellen Gould White: “True education means more than a pursual of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of all the faculties – physical, mental, and spiritual powers. It prepares the student for the joy of service in this world and for the higher joy of wider service in the world to come.”

Dorothea has been married to Byron Claud Robinson since 1967, and is the proud mom of two great kids.

Dr. Byron Claud Robinson is a philanthropist and a servant of God, man and country. He is challenged to make a difference in the lives of people around the world.

He was born in Mandeville, Manchester, Jamaica, in 1938, and was destined by God to follow in his mother’s footsteps by attending West Indies Training College, which is now known as Northern Caribbean University. In 1967, he married the former Dorothea Daniel, and they are the proud parents of two children who are both attorneys at law.

While still a graduate student at Meharry Medical College, Dr. Robinson was named the recipient of a Jamaica Independence Award in 1964 and a Jamaica Government Scholarship in 1965, along with several other national awards and accolades.

He is a Fellow of the American College of Oral Surgeons, a Fellow of the International Association of Oral Surgeons, and a Member of several other national and international professional and business organizations. As well, he is the author of several published research papers and has successfully patented a number of biochemical compounds that hold promise in the fight against cancer.

He has been instrumental in building several centers for Spiritual and Educational activities. The most recognized edifice is the Robinson Hall at NCU, located in Mandeville, Manchester, Jamaica, West Indies. Robinson Hall is the main classroom facility for the University’s daily life.

In 2007 it was voted by students, Faculty and Board of Governors of his Alma mater, Northern Caribbean University to bestow on him the honorary Doctor of Human Letters for his foresight, sagacity, and Christ-like commitment for the betterment of student care and University development for over 35 years.

In bestowing the honorary doctorate, Northern Caribbean University, which has been a recipient of Dr. Robinson’s tireless generosity, presented to him the following written tribute:

“We thank you for your willingness to admire, approve, and adore the best values in all persons, regardless of sex, race or religion. We thank you for the faith that you cultivate the hope you display, and the love you share in this secular world. We thank you for the simplicity, sincerity and service that you offer at home or at work. We thank you for the sacrificial gift of yourself, your talents, and your funds for the well-being of students, friends and strangers. We thank you for the loving kindness and patience you apply to every situation that you encounter along life’s journey. Above all, we thank you for being you.”
