ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- When the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) receives students for the new academic year, including at the refurbished L-Shaped Building for junior school students, on Monday September 9, 2019, it will be doing so with a confirmed principal at the helm.

Virgin Islander Vanessa K. Garraway, a long serving educator at ESHS, has been appointed to the principal’s post.

According to reports reaching our newsroom, Ms Garraway was chosen from a long list of applicants that included persons from overseas and a former principal and political candidate.

Ms Garraway, who was the Deputy Principal and the Principal responsible for Senior Academics, was acting in the capacity of Principal following the resignation of Ms Sandy M. Harrigan-Underhill prior to the February 25, 2019 General Elections.

At the time Ms Garraway was reportedly not the choice of the then Minister for Education Mr Myron V. Walwyn, who was criticised for allegedly micromanaging the Ministry of Education and was blamed for the morale in public schools falling to an all-time low.

Senior sources in the Ministry of Education and Culture speaking, to our news desk on condition of anonymity back in January 2019, had alleged, “there was too much pressure against who the Minister really wanted” and subsequently a phone call was made to advise Ms Garraway that “she was in charge until, about February” or until further notice.

Prior to taking on administrative duties in various capacities at the Elmore Stoutt High School, Ms Garraway served as a teacher of Mathematics.

    A setback is always a setup for success. God is always faithful. You will do well because you are fit and proper to be principal.

    Stop! The negative comments and pray genuinely for the youths and all stakeholders in Education. You locals are unbelievable. “Virgin Islander...” who ever you believe in don’t care about Virgin Islands more than any other ethnicity. Are you asking for another storm, continue with your sinful behavior.

      Always fear mongering. Only some people suppose to express themselves Virgin Islanders suppose to keep quiet if they defend themselves they will be punished. You hypocrites is not going to silence us so you can fulfill your agenda. When the storm come all of us will suffer.

      We pray that Jesus will guide us to make the right choi ces to put people in positions who genuinely love the BVI and not people whose agenda is to exploit. There is nothing sinful about that. Thankful that God is not like man. Congrats Mrs. Garraway well deserving.
