Freeport Grand Bahama Island - The final countdown to Bahamas Social Media Summit is on as the much touted businesspersons event will take place this Tuesday April 5th, 2016 at the Royal Palm room at the Grand Lucayan Resort. Bahamas Social Media Summit co-chair David Mackey announced at a press conference on Friday April 1, 2016 at Mackey Media Studios at Grand Lucayan, a $6000 investment in Public School students on Grand Bahama Island through the Ministry of Education and College of The Bahamas. Mr. Mackey explained that he and Mitch Carson, co-chair of Bahamas Social Media Summit decided to invest in the future by paying the admission of 15 high school students and 15 College of The Bahamas students rather than simply donating to a cause. Likening it to the old Chinese proverb, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." Mr. Mackey went on to say, 'We believe that our gesture will generate high ROI (return on investment) by empowering persons to harness the economic power of Social Media to set them on a path towards immediate business development and growth."

District Education Officer, Western Grand Bahama & Bimini District Marvin J. Rolle,  on behalf of The Ministry of Education says of the gesture, 'We are so pleased that Bahamas Social Media Summit is coming to Grand Bahama. At a time when so many are talking about the social ills in our society, we at the Ministry of Education are thankful that the organizers are partnering with us to help educate our students and prepare them for the world of business and technology. Their generous donation to our students is greatly appreciated."
