GOMPA, Nimba – Bein-Garr District Education Officer J. Lynon Martor, who has served the district for over four years, is being reassigned to take on the same post in Saclepea-Mahn Education District One.
Martor formally turned over his duties to his successor, Alex Wuo, over the weekend and has since taken over his new job.
The induction ceremony for Wuo was conducted by Regional Education Officer George Wuo. The occasion was witnessed by a number of teachers from the district, as well as Nimba’s County Education Officer Moses Dologbay.
George Wuo attributed the transfer of Martor to his remarkable works that was done over the time when he served as DEO for Bein-Garr School District. He said it is about time that other districts benefit from Martor’s experience.
“Mr. Martor has done very well in this district here,” Wuo said, “he brought changes to this district – the very hall that is hosting us today was started by the [previous] Kezie Administration and he [Martor] completed ended it.
“Sometimes it is necessary to carry on these changes so that others will begin to benefit from the experience and developmental initiatives that he, Mr. Martor, has already [been] engaged into. So, Saclepea One will be benefiting from his experience.”
Martor took over officially as the new DEO of Saclepea One on May 8.
In a brief remark, Martor thanked all parties for the smooth level of cooperation they had during his tenure.
“We are very proud indeed for the level of achievements we brought to the district,” he said, “It was not going to be possible if we have not had the much needed cooperation from all parties. I want to say thank you for the time and cooperation.”
Martor said he was especially grateful and appreciative to his zonal heads for implementing his agendas in locations where he was not always present. He added that “the cooperation from this district, made it possible for us to achieve the completion of the DEO office; the cooperation also brought the DEO residence in Bein-Garr at roof levels; the cooperation is also seen the establishment of fence around the perimeter of J. W. Pearson High School.” He said he expected the fence to be completed in two years.
Martor’s transfer came a month after his return from the United States of America after spending a little over three months attending a program aimed at promoting science education in schools.
During the ceremony, Regional Education Officer George Wuo also appointed a new principal of the J. W. Pearson High School, a major high school within the district.
