The family and close friends of the late Juvita Toetu Tone gifted a full scholarship to a Year 13 student at St Joseph’s College, Alafua on Wednesday.

Muriel Schuster and Natalia Tone-Vaai of the Juvita Toetu Tone Foundation presented the scholarship valued at $1240 to Eteuati Junior Eteuati. 

This will cover his school fees and P.S.S.C fees for this year.  

Mr. Eteuati is a high achieving student from Faleasiu who is currently studying Science.

 He thanked the family and friends of Juvita Toetu Tone for supporting his education this year.

 Mrs. Tone-Vaai said the Foundation – made up of Juvita’s family and close friends - is committed to continuing with other charitable projects in the future.

 “We wanted to remember Juvita in a special way so we rallied together to make this happen,” said Mrs. Tone-Vaai.  

“Juvita was passionate about education and helping others so we agreed to do this in his memory.” 

The late Juvita is an ex-pupil of St Joseph’s College. He went on to attain a Bachelor of Agricultural Science from the University of the South Pacific, Alafua.

He was from the villages of Sinamoga and Vaimoso. 

He passed away in January 2016.
