“According to the late great Nelson Mandela, ‘No country can really develop unless its citizens are educated.’ Nagico Insurances is well aware of this and spares little to support the development of the young minds of the Virgin Islands.”
This was stated by Customer Service and Sales Representative for the Nagico Insurances’ Virgin Gorda Branch, Susanna Ophelia, during a presentation of an EPSON PowerLite Wireless Projector to the Virgin Gorda Branch of the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) on Thursday March 7, 2019.
The HLSCC Virgin Gorda Centre had lost its projectors, among other equipment, during the devastating hurricanes of September 2017.
One of the benefactors of Nagico Insurances’ community mindedness has always been the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC).
As recently as January, Nagico Insurances donated a dozen of the recently launched book titled, “Nursing In The Virgin Islands: A Historical Perspective (1920-2017)” to the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC) in Paraquita Bay. This book was the work of local author and medical professional Norma M. Benjamin.
Back in December, Nagico Insurances was a main sponsor of the college’s fundraiser dubbed ‘Jam for a Cause’.
“And we were delighted to be given an opportunity by Dr Steve Lennard to make a presentation to the HLSCC’s Virgin Gorda Centre. We trust this piece of equipment, an EPSON PowerLite Wireless Projector, would assist the college to creatively deliver some of the programmes offered,” Ms Ophelia remarked.
On hand to receive the donation was President of HLSCC Mrs Judith Vanterpool, who expressed gratitude for the continued support by Nagico Insurances.
Director of the HLSCC Virgin Gorda Centre Dr Steve Lennard also had words of appreciation for the needed equipment.
“We lost all the projectors we had during the hurricanes. We would normally use them for business classes, computer courses and so on. The donation is so much appreciated. Our IT guys are very excited about it as well. It is a very good brand,” Dr Lennard stated.
Meanwhile, Ms Ophelia encouraged other businesses to also reach out the HLSCC Virgin Gorda Centre, as well as other educational institutions still rebuilding following the catastrophic hurricanes of September 2017.
It was last October, during Teachers Appreciation Week, that Nagico Insurances BVI expressed its gratitude for teachers of Ciboney Centre for Excellence on Virgin Gorda with a donation of office furniture and equipment.
