The Leader of the People’s National Congress, Mr. David Granger is deeply saddened by the death of Ms. Daphne Elaine Rogers, MS, who has died at the age of 92.

She served as Principal of the In-Service Teachers Training College and as Administrator of the National Cultural Centre and in the Department of Culture for several years.
