Nishanthi Bailey has been elected as the new president of the Bermuda Union of Teachers.

The announcement yesterday came after the union held elections for its executive committee at its annual conference at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club on Monday.

She replaces Shannon James in the post.

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.

The scholarships, launched in 2014, are designed to encourage university students to pursue education in arts-related disciplines, including theatre and dance.

Anthony Wolffe will serve as the BUT vice-president and Craig Crichlow as treasurer.

Shequita Parson will act as the administrative executive and Dante Cooper as recording secretary.

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.

A breakdown of the election results was not provided.
