Former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sunday made a number of stops on St. Croix to various nonprofit organizations. The leaders first visited Lutheran Social Services where they spoke to officials and met with children. Also on this tour was Governor Albert Bryan and First Lady Yolanda Bryan. Tim Duncan, who held an event earlier the same day at the Claude O. Markoe Elementary School as part of his $500,000 donation towards a program aimed at helping children from low-income families succeed in school, was also part of the first stop at Lutheran Services.
Delegate to Congress Stacey Plaskett was also in attendance, and even spoke of her history at Queen Louise Home for Children. “Many years ago when my [mother’s mother] passed away, it was five girls that were twelve and under, and they were sent to Queen Louise Home for a number of months before they were sorted out by relatives. My mother has always made us give back to Queen Louise and I was on the board of Lutheran Social Services, because she said those were the best months maybe of her childhood,” Ms. Plaskett said.
