First Bahamian Inducted to International Hall of Fame

Nassau, Bahamas, March 26, 2013- Heritage Education Funds International proudly congratulates Ms. Barbara Major for her induction into the Hall of Fame. At Heritage’s recent annual convention in Huatulco, Mexico, Heritage announced that Ms. Barbara Major had been elected to the Heritage Hall of Fame for her dedication to the advancement of higher education and as an exceptional performer.

Heritage Education Funds is an institution that helps parents, grandparents and other interested sponsors save for a child’s future post-secondary education through the provision of Educational Saving Plans. Heritage has been operating in the Bahamas for over twenty (20) years. After many years in the field of banking, Barbara commenced a new career path in 1992 with Heritage, starting out as District Manager and was soon after promoted to country head and Agency Director for the entire Bahamas. Over the years she has assisted many families and witnessed thousands of Bahamian students benefit from a Heritage education savings plan, started by either their parents and or guardians for their children’s future post-secondary education.

The criteria for being inducted to the Heritage Hall of Fame is quite challenging. In order to qualify for consideration individuals must meet the requirements in one of two categories:

1. Developer: The Heritage Sales representative must have a minimum of 20 years of service and have consistently displayed excellence throughout his/her career with a minimum enrollment of 2,000 children.

2. Builder: The Heritage Agency Director or Manager must have the 20 years service minimum and displayed excellence in production, recruitment, and persistency. In congratulating Barbara, Mr. Scott McIndless, Chairman of the Board of Heritage Education Funds said that Ms. Major was the first member in the Hall of Fame to qualify in both categories and that there is no other inductee in the Hall of Fame who has produced more than Ms. Major. She also happens to be the first female inductee into the International Hall of Fame in the history of Heritage.

In addition to the Bahamas, Heritage operates in Jamaica, Bermuda, Canada, the Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.
