Director of Education Clare Browne is leading tributes – on behalf of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology – to the late retired educator Glenford Joseph who died in the US on Sunday.
In a release to the media yesterday, Browne said the Ministry of Education received the news of Joseph’s passing with great sadness.
“Those of us who knew Mr. Joseph personally and had the opportunity to work with him are certainly touched by his passing. He has served his country faithfully over the years and in various capacities. He will be remembered for his sharp intellect,” he said.
“The Ministry of Education offers our sincere sympathy to the bereaved family members, friends, and past students of Mr. Joseph. May God grant the peace which surpasses all understanding.”
After entering the service in September 1992, Joseph served in various capacities within the public school system, including stints as Deputy Principal and Head and of the English Department at the Princess Margaret School.
Later in his career, the now-deceased educator served as Language Arts Coordinator. Upon retirement he was given the task of establishing the Antigua and Barbuda National Accreditation Board (ABNAB).
He subsequently served as ABNAB’s first executive director.
