Interval International has recognized St. Lucia-based member resorts that participated in this year’s fundraising initiative benefiting the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association Education Foundation (CHTAEF). Interval and its member resorts donated $60,000 to the CHTAEF earlier this year.
Neil Kolton, Interval’s director of resort sales and service for the Caribbean and Florida, recently presented representatives of Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa and Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort & Spa with awards for their ongoing support.
The CHTAEF was established in 1987 as a non-profit organization through which scholarships and special assistance would be made available for the education of Caribbean hotel industry personnel and students pursuing careers in tourism. As part of its mission, it provides people throughout the region with an awareness of the industry’s varied career opportunities, as well as technical and professional development. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded US$1.5 million in scholarships and grants to applicants who demonstrate a strong commitment to the hotel and tourism industry.
