Furthermore, she said that students of the CHS have lost a mentor, a school has lost a teacher “and the Ministry of Education has lost a pillar who supported our educational community.”

On behalf of the Ministry of Education and the Government of Dominica Alfred extends deepest condolences to the family, especially his mother, friends, loved ones of Mr Angol, the teachers, students, and the Principal at the CHS.

 “Whether he taught a student or not, you’d become familiar when he put his cape on and saved our day from Internet and technology woes. He once was titled DJ Boyles ‘Law when he once provided music services at CHS activities and assemblies. He helped tremendously in the timetabling of CHS staff and subjects…,” the post said.  “A gentle giant, funny, hardworking, determined, committed. Kevin… this is so hard…this is unbelievable. But as people who look to the Lord, this is not the end. We send condolences to his mom and family.”
