Sonless Martin and Ray Ferguson of non-profit organization, Beacon for Change, have ensured that every teacher at The Beacon School will have a laptop and a projector for their classroom, as they realized that the school had a need, and were happy to be able to answer the call.
Martin, a native of Grand Bahama, who now resides in Florida, said it was an honor for them to return yearly to do something for the school.
For the past 10 years, Martin has reached out to school officials to find out what was needed, and he and his organization would return to Grand Bahama to make the donations.
Titi McKenzie-Moss, The Beacon School principal, thanked Martin and Beacon for Change for the donation and noted that while several donations came in for the students to have tablets, the teachers were lacking devices.
“I know that in this time when technology is so important, this will go a long way in assisting our children whether they are in the classroom or doing online learning,” said McKenzie.
Iram Lewis, Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, said he was proud of Martin and Ferguson.
Ivan Butler, superintendent of education, also thanked the organization for their donation.
