In a bid to formally recognize Bahamians who dedicated their lives to education, post Independence, the government has continued with a school renaming exercise, which commenced a few years ago. On Thursday, March 19, the Oakes Field Primary underwent a renaming exercise and now bears the name of veteran educator and avid gardener, Mrs. Eva Hilton (nee Godet).
