A 27 year old woman lost her life on January 27th in a traffic accident on the island of Eleuthera. The woman was identified as school guidance counsellor, Chara Major.

Acting Director of Education, Dominique McCartney-Russell spoke to ZNS News reacting to the tragic passing. “I can’t explain how much of a tragedy this is for us as well as the students of Emma Cooper Primary who have lost an advocate, a child advocate. Someone who are for them. Some one who did not only give her service during the nine to three but she serves after school, she served on the weekends, you know just to support the people in the community in Eleuthera. So there are no words to express how sad we are, a young vibrant counsellor just gone to soon I believe.”
