Ms Bailey is a dramatic arts teacher at Dellwood Middle School and is the co-creator of the Nadanja and Nishanthi N’tertainment Scholarship with her brother, Nadanja Bailey.

Mike Charles, the general secretary of the BUT, said that all members would serve in their positions for two years to begin at the union’s upcoming Annual General Meeting.
