Armed with encouragement and boxes of school supplies, Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) candidate Renardo Curry embarked on a long bus ride starting at the ball field at Abaco Central High School and ending in Crown Haven on Saturday, September 8.
“It was very fulfilling for me to see the smiles on the kid’s faces,” Mr. Curry said.
Mr. Curry said that instead of just stop to say ‘hi’ in these communities, decided to give the children school supplies and “remind them that there are people that want them to succeed and are willing to give them help to succeed.”
“One of my focuses is education, because I believe if you get a good education you can then contribute to the development of your communities,” Mr. Curry said.
He said he will be pushing very hard for education, as he looks to bring trade and vocational schools like BTVI (Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute) to North Abaco. “We’d also like to have some programs for those who didn’t finish high school to help them earn their diplomas,” he added.
“We believe if we can help them succeed and develop themselves it will help us all,” he said.
