MARTIN GEORGE DONATES TO SCHOOL
Attorney donates $100,000 to Scarborough RC
Attorney Martin George has pledged $100,000 to the Scarborough Roman Catholic School to establish an Annual Althea George Memorial Prize for Excellence. The Memorial is named in honour of his mother.
The sum is to be given out each year for the next 20 years for the most excellent student in Standards One to Five with a prize of $1000 each plus a trophy to inspire and spur on the students to excellence.
George also asked for the school to establish an Annual Prize giving day in honour of his mother whereby they would celebrate the achievements and successes of the students and use this as a launchpad for bigger and better achievements.
In addition, George honoured the school’s Principal, Phillip Rochford, for his gallantry and bravery in rushing in not too long ago to save a student who had been the victim of a vicious sexual attack upon the school’s compound. For this act of fearlessness and selflessness George gave the Principal a cheque in the sum of $10,000 as a personal tribute in honour of the leadership and courage he displayed.
A a few years ago, George also made another Pledge of $100,000 to the school for the Althea George Scholarship for the top SEA student each year with an annual prize of $2500, and he pledged to remain committed to the development and attainment of excellence for Scarborough RC School and for the Tobago Education system in general.
