ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The L-Shaped Building of the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) will be renamed after retired educator Ms Lillian Adorothy Turnbull.

The Handing Over Ceremony and Service of Thanksgiving for the refurbished ESHS L-Shaped Building will be done at 2:30pm today Friday, September 6, 2019.

And according to Government Information Service (GIS) on September 5, 2019, Ms Turnbull’s contribution to the development of education for the past 50 years will be recognised when the Government of the Virgin Islands officially re-opens the building under the theme “Let There Be Light…Elmore Stoutt High School Shining Bright”.

It was at the Elmore Stoutt High School Graduation Ceremony at the Multi-Purpose Sports Complex on June 27, 2019 that Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture, Dr The Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley (R7) had stated that the L-Shaped Building would be renamed.

Hon Wheatley; however, had at the time told Virgin Islands News Online that no name was decided on as yet.

Ms Turnbull is highly regarded for her contribution to the education system of the Virgin Islands.

Coincidentally, Ms Turnbull was among the first batch of students to attend the territory’s first secondary school, which opened on Main Street in 1943. He classmates included the late former chief ministers H. Lavity Stoutt and Cyril B. Romney.

Meanwhile, the Service of Thanksgiving will also be in appreciation to God for seeing the territory through its recovery efforts following the passage of hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The public is invited to attend.

    Congratulations to the lady and her family. Teachers back in the days we’re just different from today’s teacher’s. The educational system did enhance, pay did enhance but real passion like the old days are very rare. Most teachers back in the days work hard to provide not only great results but also to get their name on a school or building. The payment back then cash Wize wasn’t much but they did it regardless.
