PHILIPSBURG–Charlotte Brookson Academy of the Performance Arts (CBA) students recently recognised some of its donors, by presenting them with tokens of appreciation for their continuous support of the institution. On Friday, July 7, CBA student Anahi Rodriguez-Guererro presented an original art piece to the owner of Paula’s Spa, located at Sapphire Beach Club Resort. The owner has been a “quiet” supporter of the school it was stated in a press release. Presentations were also made to the management of Sapphire Beach Club and Resort, who continuously support youth projects and initiatives.
CBA students also visited Top Carrot’s owner Lydia Bonev to express their “heartfelt gratitude” for her continuous support, being a silent donor, and for sponsoring all of their trips to New York and Miami. “Lydia treated students and chaperones to a hearty lunch, providing a wonderful experience for the students,” the release said. She had sponsored the Summer and Winter Intensive Horton Workshops held in July 2014 and in January 2015, which were hosted by CBA. According to the release, CBA students spent an entire day honouring those who have been their “guardian angels”, and those who continue to be. Expressing their appreciation to the many supporters, “created a very positive experience for the students and left them with a strong sense of grace,” the release said. Recognising donors also support the vision of the school’s namesake Charlotte Brookson, who believed in young people, their right to a strong academic education and the development of their talents in the performance arts.
