Minister for Education, Doctor Gale Rigobert, has confirmed receipt of resignation letters from the board of Sir Arthur Lewis Community College (SALCC).
The minister indicated that she has responded, expressing her gratitude to the board for their service.
“I wish to thank all of you for your tremendous support and unwavering commitment to the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College and the advancement of the people of Saint Lucia,” Rigobert stated.
“I pray that God will give you the strength and wisdom as you continue to make a worthwhile contribution to the development of our beautiful country in your respective fields.”
Rigobert has indicated that on Monday, Cabinet will name an interim board to oversee the restructuring and transformation of the SALCC.
She is adamant that the challenges at the college are not limited to the issue of money, and that there is a plethora of other matters that must be addressed immediately if the college is to fulfill it’s mandate satisfactorily and meet the demands of a dynamic global political economy.
Doctor Rigobert reaffirmed her government’s commitment to ensuring that SALCC distinguishes itself as the premier tertiary learning institution in Saint Lucia.
