SINOE COUNTY, Liberia— An American Educator, Elizabeth Johnson on Tuesday, 15 April 2014 donated a consignment books and sports equipment to students at the GVL School at the company’s Wakefield Nursery in Butaw.
During the turning over ceremony Ms. Johnson expressed gladness over her presence in Sinoe County and her involvement with the GVL school system. Some of the books donated came from the public library system in Wurster, Massachusetts, while the footballs were donated by the American football club FC United.
Elizabeth Johnson is an educational consultant for the College Board in the U.S. She first visited Liberia in November last year at which time she provided professional development for the staff at a Liberian orphanage.
