TTUTA elects its first female president
The Ministry of Education extends heartiest congratulations to Mrs. Antonia De Freitas upon her election as President of the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teacher’s Association (TTUTA). Mrs. De Freitas’ election is particularly noteworthly as she is the first female President of the Association.
The Honourable, Anthony Garcia, Minister of Education, himself a former President of TTUTA, noted that Mrs. De Freitas was one of the three (3) women vying for the Presidency and commented that it “was only a matter of time” before a woman took the reins of leadership of the Association. Minister Garcia also expressed gratitude to the outgoing President, Mr. Lynsley Doodhai, who it was felt had served with distinction.
The Ministry is confident that the cordial and productive relationship it has always enjoyed with the Association will continue to thrive under Mrs. De Freitas’ stewardship.
