Providenciales, 28 Jan 2015 – Beaches Turks & Caicos continued its commitment to promote education in the TCI this week when the resort donated a $35,000 check to the island’s tertiary education scholarship fund.
The resort has been a longtime supporter of education in the TCI and has donated over $280,000 to the scholarship fund since 2006. Minister of Education, Honorable Akierra Missick who accepted the check on behalf of her Ministry, expressed her gratitude to Beaches Resort for the annual contribution.
“The Department of Education is grateful for this partnership and for the financial donation to our scholarship fund,” she said, “This donation will go a long way as it will help to further the academic goals of many Turks & Caicos Islanders and will also help with their career endeavors.”
Now in its eighth year, the Beaches Resort remains committed to not only supporting primary and secondary education through its foundation, but also supporting tertiary level education and career advancement. It does this through financial donations, while working alongside the Education Department and the Ministry of Labor to provide hands-on learning and apprenticeships.
“This is a great initiative for us, not only are we committed to enhancing education through the Sandals Foundation, but we are also committed to providing financial avenue through the resort for qualified islanders who wish to pursue higher education,” said PR Manager Elanor Finfin Krzanowski who made the presentation on behalf of the resort, “This check presentation is evidence of our continued commitment and unwavering support to young people of these islands.”
The yearly contribution will go to the consolidated fund to supplement the scholarship budget for the 2015/2016 school curriculum.
