PARAQUITA BAY, Tortola, VI- Close to a month after Virgin Islands News Online (VINO) had reported that former Principal of Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS) Sandy M. Harrigan-Underhill been tipped for Director of the new teacher's training institute, our first and accurate story has been confirmed.

“I’m delighted to welcome Mrs Harrigan-Underhill to HLSCC,” President of the HLSCC, Dr Richard E. Georges, said via a post on Facebook on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.

‘Outstanding choice’- Dr Georges

Dr Georges added: “She is an outstanding choice as the first Director of our new Institute of Education, bringing a wealth of experience from leadership roles at the territory’s largest secondary school, and experience in the sector both locally and internationally,” he said.

The post stated that Mrs Harrigan-Underhill has more than 27 years of experience in education and 10 years in progressive leadership positions.

      Yeah, I don't think she'll give up her good job to take that gamble following him again. Not this time around at least. But hey, it was worth a try. Sometimes in life you won't know for sure unless you try, even though she came up short...
