CedarBridge Academy principal Kalmar Richards has been honoured by fellow head teachers as part of a celebration of the school’s twentieth anniversary.

Principals from middle and senior schools gave Ms Richards, who is expected to be named as acting Commissioner of Education on Monday, a bouquet of flowers as a “token of appreciation” for her work at CedarBridge.

They said: “Like noted pioneers in many circumstances, Kalmar Richards has had to overcome the odds, as often occurs in new approaches in any society.

“She has been an exemplar as a servant leader in her roles at the Academy. She was one of the original three deputies and within a couple of years took over the helm, in difficult waters.

“Always the professional, Ms Richards is also able to connect with others. Ms Richards knows each and every student at the school by name and demonstrates this no small feat as she very often meets each student as they enter the building at the beginning of the school day.

“Ms Richards has also been a mentor to a number of fellow teachers and some of her mentees are now serving in senior roles in various venues.”

Ms Richards told The Royal Gazette: “At the 20-year milestone, I celebrate the past and present faculty, staff, parents, students and board members for all of their contributions to our notable achievements.

“It is the collective efforts of all stakeholders which have enabled us to make the significant progress we have over the years.

“I thank the CedarBridge Academy family and wish everyone continued success in the years to come as we continue with our efforts to cultivate Bermuda’s achievers.”

Principals who contributed to the gift were:

• Garrita Coddington, TN Tatem Middle School

• Keisha Douglas, Berkeley Institute

• Tina Duke, Dellwood Middle School
