The FortisTCI Adopt – a – School initiative aims to assist in the development of the full educational potential of schools in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Each year a new school will be selected by the Company. By way of this new partnership FortisTCI will assist with school projects, provide volunteers for school programs, offer support through in-kind and partial monetary donations and most importantly, add a positive influence in schools that will improve the learning experience and social lives of students.
Principal of Ona Glinton, Gwen Harvey said "There are challenges we face every day do to limited resources, but we do our best and find ways to rise above those challenges here at Ona Glinton. What is most important to us is that our students excel in the classroom." Harvey was also presented with a $2000 check during the announcement by FortisTCI staff. The funds were provided by parent company, Fortis Inc., based in Canada. "Now that we have the Support of FortisTCI we are enthusiastic about the year ahead," said Harvey.
