Juvita Toetu Tone memory honoured with scholarship
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.
