Basseterre, St. Kitts, 31st August, 2018 (MyVueNews.com) – A new deputy governor will be sworn in today, 31st August, in Charlestown Nevis.
Hyleta Liburd will be sworn in at the Charlestown Courthouse and will become the island’s second female to be in the position. She will replace Marjorie Morton who debits office at the end of August.
Both women had outstanding careers in the public sector.
Ms. Liburd served in the field of education for almost 39 years and retired as a principal. She also awarded a Medal of Service Award in 2005.
According to Premier Mark Brantley, she is a person of “the highest probity and integrity.”
Speaking at a press conference this week, Premier Brantley said there was a conscious decision to appoint a woman to the post.
He said, “For us, that was important for us to continue that rich tradition of having women in these types of positions.”
Brantley thanked both women for answering to call of duty.
