Ambassador in the Ministries of Sports and Culture, His Excellency Jonel Powell has described the passing of former Educator and Chief Civil Servant Mr. Elvis Newton as the loss of a mentor.

Mr. Newton taught Ambassador Powell while he attended the Newtown Primary School now the Tucker-Clarke Primary.

“Mr Newton was not only a teacher and educator to myself and many others but a mentor to me both as a student and a young man. He was an educator and mentor for an entire generation of students many of whom have grown to become exemplary young men and women no doubt largely as a result of his guidance and mentorship during his tenure as an educator at the Newtown Primary School,” said Powell

“He was one of those stand out teachers that made a difference  and never lost interest in his students, right to the end. I can still hear him now teaching us the lyrics to some of Sparrow’s greatest in grade 6,” Powell continued.

“I am truly saddened by his passing . He leaves a void not only in the hearts of many of us his former students, colleagues, friends, and family, but he also leaves a huge void in the soul and heart of our nation. Mr. Newton will be remembered as the consummate professional and a man brimmed with integrity and love for people and nation. He will be sorely missed,” Ambassador Powell con cluded
