James Franklin Wilson has been appointed as the new Saba Educational Foundation (SEF) President as of August 1.
In line with SEF’s statutory stipulations, the Executive Council of Saba made the decision to appoint Wilson after Stacey Simmons decided to resign as SEF President and Board Member as of August 1, for personal reasons.
Given Wilson’s extensive experience in education on Saba as both an educator and Head of the Education Department, his appointment is viewed by the Executive Council and SEF as an “asset and ideal opportunity” for the organisation entering into the 2015-2016 school year, Saba Government Information Service stated in a press release on Tuesday.
“I am cognizant of the fact that there will always be challenges along the way. However, with the concerted efforts and a spirit of cooperation by board members, staff members and parents alike, no task will be too daunting to tackle,” Wilson stated.
Wilson joins Secretary and Vice-President La-Toya Charles and Treasurer Gied Mommers as SEF board members.
