Screen_Shot_2014-01-29_at_8.10.11_PMToday a special Thanks Giving ceremony was held at the Belize Adventist College Auditorium where recognition was given to those students who were involved in a traffic mishap last week Thursday in the Corozal District. The event saw the participation of the student body, teachers and invited guests from the Ministry of Education. It was a spirited event as it saw testimonials from the students involved in the accident and included prayer segments. CTV3 News spoke with Pamela Herron, Teacher and Counselor of the school who told us more on the day’s event.

 

Pamela Herron– Teacher/Counselor


“We are doing this in the acknowledgement that that protected us during that accident with the children, we can see that it could have been worst but we are grateful to God so today we are having special people like Mr. Magana from Scotia Bank who was the only person that stop and helped out the students that needed to go to the hospital and then we have Mrs. Alvares, she is from the ministry of education, she was there with us for the whole entire day, she even brought lunch for us and each student toady will get a purple ribbon thanking God for their bravery and we know this is a dramatic experience but we have seen how God has Secured your life.”

“Will the colour purple play something now symbolic in respect to this ceremony?”


Pamela Herron– Teacher/Counselor


“Our uniform has always been purple so we took this program as an initiative from where they US government gives purple heart to their personnel that is in the navy or in the army when they are brave and they are recognized in that ceremony.”


According to Herron, at the time of the incident, 18 students complained of body pain and received minor injuries. The student who was flung out of the bus has recovered from her injuries as well. As we reported on Thursday, the student bus was carrying out its routine trips to the school campus when a Jeep Cherokee, driven by Eusebio Urbina, entered the lane of the bus and caused the collision between mile marker 70 and 71. Lawrence Tillet, driver of the bus took control of the bus avoiding it to overturn and landed in a cane field.
