The four contractors on the Elmore Stoutt High School L-Shaped Building Project have donated $10,000 (ten thousand dollars) each to the continuing development of the school.
Contractors Roy Garraway of Quality Construction Ltd., Autley Crabbe of Autland Heavy Equipment Ltd., Kelvin Thomas of Quality Air Condition and Refrigeration, and Avinash Chavan of Construction Industrial and Equipment had pledged to donate the funds during the contract signing for the commencement of the project in April.
Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture, Dr. the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley said, “I am proud to be a Virgin Islander and see what our local contractors can do. Again I say a special thank you to the contractors for not only completing the project but also going the extra mile and giving back more to the advancements of the school.”
The L-shaped building which was badly damaged by the 2017 hurricanes has been named after veteran educator Ms. Lillian Adorothy Turnbull and was officially reopened on the second Anniversary of Hurricane Irma on September 6.
