I am a proud beneficiary of the Peace Corps Programme in Sierra Leone. The time Mr Cathcart was serving in Yonibana I was in Class 7 in the UMC Primary School in Yonibana and by the time he left I was already in Form 1 at the Yonibana Secondary School. I knew him as a small boy and after his batch then came Miss Kimol, Miss Judy and others who taught me in form 1. I have graduated from Fourah Bay College and taught History in the Government Independence Secondary School in Freetown and later joined the Sierra Leone Police Force where I am currently serving as a Superintendent of Police. I am looking forward to going to America briefly where I can possibly meet with my old teachers at YSS.I should be grateful for all the knowledge gained from these wonderful people from America.
