Tourism reps present beach bags loaded with goodies from The Bahamas
PLANTATION, FLORIDA — Representatives from the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation’s (BMOTA) sales and marketing team recently took time out to present gift beach bags loaded with Bahamas-branded items to teachers of Somerset Academy Miramar Charter School, Miramar, Florida.
The Bahamas — a country of 700 distinctive islands that spans over 100,000 square miles of crystal clear turquoise waters, and its spectacular, award-winning pink and white, powder-soft sand beaches — is world-renowned.
BMOTA Executive Phylia Shivers said: “Teachers have worked tirelessly and selflessly to help our children, especially during this pandemic. As a gesture of gratitude, especially during this Teacher Appreciation Week, we at the BMOTA felt it was only fitting to show our appreciation to teachers for their dedicated service.
“We not only wanted to invite them to The Bahamas to experience ‘the perfect place’, but also provide them with tangible, memorable and practical gifts they could use while they, their family and friends are vacationing with us.”
Bahamas-branded gift items, including hand sanitizers, masks, sunglasses, caps and beach towels, were presented to 76 teachers as well as to Melissa Predero, Rookie of the Year; Ciera Flores, Teacher of the Year; and Alexandra Prieto, principal of Somerset Academy Miramar Charter School.
