St George's pupil gives back to school in honour of his science teacher...

Decades later, the pupil- turned-doctor has given back to his school in honour of “Sir”.

Suresh Persad, 72, attended St George's College in Barataria in the 1960s.

Persad is an obstetrician/gynaecologist in Georgia, United States.
