Tucker Clarke students get assistance



MN-1Basseterre, St. Kitts, Tuesday, 10th October, 2017 ( - After some seven years, primary school students at the Tucker Clarke Primary School in the eastern section of Basseterre, are continuing to benefit from the generous support of the William Marcus Natta Memorial Scholarship Fund (WMNMSF).

The latest donation was recorded on Tuesday, 10th October, 2017, when co-founder of the Fund, Dr. Marcus L Natta, delivered dozens of markers, pencils and pens to the school, according to a release issued by the local organization.

According to Dr. Natta, the Scholarship Fund is also coordinating efforts to assist primary school students in the Commonwealth of Dominica in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

“It is always a pleasure for our Scholarship Fund to give back in any way we can to the Tucker-Clarke Primary School and indeed to our nation as a whole,” said Dr. Natta. “We thank our generous donors for their financial and in-kind contributions that help us to sustain this level of philanthropy.”

The founding committee pioneered the Scholarship Fund at Tucker-Clarke Primary School in 2010 and extended the scholarship to students of the Irishtown Primary School in 2016. 

Since then, the Scholarship Fund has given assistance, totalling more than EC$7,000 to 15 primary school students and has donated over 3000 educational items to those schools.

The ceremony was witnessed by both teachers and students.

Natta was thanked for kind donation by school representative, Latoya Merchant, for what she described as timely donations and for continually supporting and partnering with the school throughout the years.

While addressing the students of Grade 5, urged them to respect themselves, respect their teachers and respect their school. 

He encouraged them to never forget the solid educational foundation that they are receiving at Tucker-Clarke and to give support to their school in the future.
