It is with deep sadness that the member agencies of the Inter Agency Group of Development Organisations have learnt of the passing of Sis Luret Clarkson. A renowned nursing professional, she was a Chief Nursing Officer and Director of the Grenada School of Nursing with the responsibility for overseeing the training of Grenada’s nurses until the programme of the Nursing School was integrated into the TAMCC.
She providing leadership at the national and regional levels – as a President of the Grenada Nurses Association and also of the Caribbean Nurses Association. In her capacity as the President of the Public Worker’s Union and President of the regional body of public sector workers, she championed the advancement of women and economic and social justice for all. She was the female version of a trade union Colossus who bestrode the national and regional scene.
We salute her memory and her contribution to national and regional development. We extend our condolences to her family, friends, colleagues and the nursing and trade union fraternities.
May she rest in peace!
