I should know – one of them was my mother – Isa Charles Isaac, and the other two (Catherine Charles Nisbett and Betty Charles) - were the best aunts that anyone could have had. Mary was also fortunate in that Rev. King saw in her, the potential of an excellent teacher.
Little did Rev. King know how right he was. It was Rev. King who facilitated her teacher training at Spring Gardens Teachers Training College in Antigua by way of a Scholarship from the Moravian Church. While here, Mary was fully supported by her other sisters and her Aunts Lizzie Percival and Katie Rawlins. It was a true case of family being supportive of family. By that time her father had died from a traumatic fall from a horse. Many other opportunities stemmed from being a school teacher and educator.
