Sandals Couple Pays Tribute To Late Antiguan Educator By Donating To Local School

Retired American educators Joseph and Teresa Furnari who are currently vacationing at Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa recently made a donation to the Greenbay Primary School, in honour of the memory of their dear friend, Antiguan educator Alfonse Ferris, who passed away recently in the United States of America.The New York residents have been friends with the late Ferris for some 50 years both professionally through teaching and personally after he relocated to the United States where he earned a doctorate degree in Education and served as an administrator for several years in the state of New York.

“When he passed away two weeks ago, we thought it fitting since we were coming to Antigua that we would honour his legacy and contribution to education locally and internationally by donating to his alma mater Greenbay Primary School,” Joseph said.

On Friday, the couple along with Sandals Public Relations Manager Leon Norville journeyed to the educational institution where they met with the school’s principal Temika Christian to officially hand over a cash donation.
