The Charles E Mills Secondary School (CEMSS) has been the recipient of a State of the Art Intercom. This gift, the first of its kind in the school system in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, was donated by the school’s benefactor, Sandy Point Benevolent Society (SPBS) in New York.
The reputable public service organization continues to partner with the CEMSS to provide some of the resources necessary to empower the students of that school and to ensure their overall success as well.
This system is critical to facilitating school safety drills and general school security.
The donation has been the biggest to date to the school, valued at approximately twenty thousand US dollars (USD20,000), including shipping and installation.
In accepting the gift, Principal Diamond said, “I wish to record our profound gratitude for the continued support that the Sandy Point Benevolent Society renders to the students and staff of the Charles E. Mills Secondary School. The most recent generous donation of a State of the Art Intercom System underscores the resounding commitment that SPBS has demonstrated towards the development of our school in particular and the community and the nation as a whole. Once again SPBS has come through for us, making the safety of our students its priority and equipping the school to be front runners in its capacity for sophisticated communication. We are eternally grateful for this invaluable asset. Thank you SPBS for being our benefactor and for always making our needs your priority. May your institution continue to grow from strength to strength.”
The president of SPBS, Dr. Stewart Williams, stated that their major annual fundraising event under the theme “Stimulating our youth – Enhancing their future” is fast approaching. This year’s fifth anniversary banquet is slated for Saturday, September 5, 2015 at the exquisite Maestro’s ballroom in the Bronx, New York, under the distinguished patronage of The Honorable Constance V. Mitcham.
This year’s highly anticipated extravaganza will be a celebratory event that also salutes the contributions of citizens of the federation whose work continues to positively impact the lives of others.
Molding minds and making memories, SPBS continues to raise the bar in its public service mission, holding true to our nation’s motto of country above self.
