Pond Island:—- TelEm Group recently donated 10 copies of Pen on Paper, a collection of articles covering politics, business, and life on St. Maarten/St. Martin, by noted writer and political commentator, Jose Lake Jr, to the University of St. Martin for its ongoing education program.
The books were donated by TelEm Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Mr. Kendall Dupersoy to Dean of Academics, Mrs. Geneve Phillip-Durham, MSc, who indicated it would find pride of place in the institution’s library of books.
According to Mr. Dupersoy, the donation serves as a useful reminder, on the eve of Emancipation Day celebrations on St. Maarten, to reflect on much of the work that has been chronicled about events of the past in various media articles.
“Scanning through the pages I am reminded of some of the events that have taken place and the background surrounding them. It makes very interesting reading, featuring some well know writers and media personnel at the time,” said Mr. Dupersoy.
Meantime TelEm Group has announced that its offices (with the exception of the Harbour Group location) will be closed Saturday in accordance with Emancipation Day celebrations.
Personnel and members of the public are asked to take note and to have a safe and enjoyable day of reflection.
