Death of Choiseul teacher shocks education fraternity

PRESS RELEASE – The sad news about the loss of Mrs. Patricia Cheryl Brown, our beloved friend, colleague, volunteer and Junior Achievement teacher advisor came as a great shock to us all and everyone who had the honor to meet or interact with her.

Mrs. Brown was a phenomenal and dedicated Junior Achievement (JA) volunteer and an outstanding Business teacher of Choiseul Secondary School (CSS). We miss the sense of fun, inspiration, guidance and motherly love that she brought to JA students, especially those who she chaperoned to JA international competitions over the years.

Her dedication to the JA program contributed immensely to the quality of life of the youth in the Choiseul community and its environs. Her enthusiasm and infectious laugh will surely be missed at regular JA activities and most certainly in the Choiseul community.

Junior Achievement and by extension the St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce Secretariat, Junior Achievement board members and staff of Lucelec (CSS sponsor) had become well-acquainted with Mrs. Brown through her frequent visits and calls to the Junior Achievement and Lucelec offices.

Mrs. Brown was very passionate about the JA program and frequently expressed the importance and value of the program. For the past 19 years she consistently registered the Choiseul Secondary School for the JA company program.

In matters relating to JA, her passion extended beyond the classroom – weekends, evenings and holidays; always prepared and available to assist students and her school. At many of JA’s workshops she inspired teachers by sharing her experience and motivated sponsors at fundraisers by enlightening them of the value of the program to the youth.

On her last trip to Mexico in December 2016 for the Company of the Year (COY) competition, she expressed, “I’m doing this for the kids, these children need that kind of exposure and I trust that God will always provide.”

JA has lost a stalwart volunteer and this loss is a terrible one for us.

On behalf of St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce and Junior Achievement board members and staff – past and present, JA teachers advisors island wide, Alumnus, Lucelec volunteers and staff, principal, students, colleagues of CSS and all who had the honor to interact with her, we extend heartfelt condolences and send love, thoughts and prayers to her children, grandchildren, family and friends during this tough time.

Take comfort in knowing that your loved one positively impacted the lives of thousand St Lucians.

“It is not length of life, but depth of life.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Rest in perfect peace Patricia Cheryl Brown. You will never be forgotten.

All JA alumnus, teacher advisors, students and friends are asked to support the family in their bereavement.

Junior Achievement (JA) is the largest and fastest-growing nonprofit economic education organization in the world serving more than 10.6 million students annually. Students experience the JA curriculum through the support of volunteers dedicated in helping students better understand business and economics.

  4. One of my favourite teachers ...REST IN PERFECT PEACE MRS.BROWN, u will surely be missed...CLASS OF 2000 🙁


  5. Smh. St Lucia news online has turned into telebituaries online at no cost. Everyday people are dying. Sno should have policies or maybe sno may have to consider creatin a page for telebituaries. Everyone who dies may have impacted someone's life in someway.


    • Did you read the article. We can report the murders but when someone has contributed so positively to our youth over the years, they should not be noted and mentioned. Then you say only bad things are happening in St Lucia.
      Read Read the article again. Perhaps you may be inspired positively to make your mark on the next generation and help provide us with the next Nobel Prize winner.
      R.I.P. Mrs. Brown.


    • If you have nothing of value to contribute please refrain from expressing your negativity.. no one is interested in your whiny attitude... this precious Lady had a huge impact on the lives of many young st.lucians and thank you SNO for highlighting the wonderful contribution she made towards society and humanity...Rip Mrs Brown
