The death news of Mr. Quayeson shocked everyone including students of the U.S. based Hunter College High School who came to Liberia few months ago as part of the I-Help Liberia Project Science Bowl competition for Liberian schools.

The last trip of the I-Help Liberia Project, the late Quayeson and other staff from the Ministry of Education Science Department traveled upcountry alone with Hunter College High School students during the conduct of several workshops for science teachers.

The late Quateson was very instrumental in mobilizing students and teachers for the upcountry Science Bowl Competition which was held amongst students of dozens of high schools in Nimba and Montserrado Counties.

His professional interaction with the visiting U.S. students from Hunter College High Schools and their mentor, Mr. Asumana Jabateh Randolph will forever be remembered, as he was always available to chip in his little professional contributions during the duration of the competition in rural Liberia.

Meanwhile, the entire Hunter Colleague High School students and the mentor have expressed their deepest sympathy to the Liberian Ministry of Education, his family for his demise.
