Work on the Mechanical Engineering Technology Building of the T.A. Marryshow Community College was given an added boost when Staff of Republic Bank lent assistance to the College’s cleanup efforts, on Saturday, January 11, 2014.
Several of the Bank’s staff volunteered their time to join the students and faculty staff to clean the Mechanical Engineering Building, which is being repaired under the Bank’s Power to Make a Difference Programme.
Republic Bank has committed almost $100,000 to repair the building which was ravaged since the passage of Hurricane Ivan, rendering the building unfit for learning.
To date, the roof has been recovered while other repairs are ongoing. Much of the labour is being contributed by the Faculty students, while receiving “hands on” training, as part of their learning experience.
Both the Students and Staff of Republic Bank were enthusiastic about the work and embraced the opportunity to volunteer in this worthwhile activity. The repairs are expected to be completed early February, 2014.
The College’s principal, Dr. Jeffrey Britton, praised the Staff of the Bank for their selfless assistance and expressed his gratitude for the interest shown in the development of the College.
