PHILIPSBURG–Fourteen newly appointed civil servants in the Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sport (ECYS) were sworn into office on Friday, March 1.
The ministry’s Acting Secretary-General Shermina Powell-Richardson directed the proceedings.
ECYS Minister Wycliffe Smith charged the employees to embrace the honour and humility of being a “true civil servant.” As a servant of the people himself with a lifelong career as a civil servant, Smith encouraged the newly-sworn-in to devote themselves to helping their fellow citizens in their varied capacities.
After reciting their promise to serve, the civil servants were pinned by Smith with the St. Maarten Coat of Arms.
