Deputy Commandant Lt. Col. Bobeth Daley-O’Garro of the Cayman Islands Cadet Corps has been awarded a Master’s degree in Education from Bristol University, which she attended as a Chevening scholar in 2005.
Mrs. O’Garro, who has been the deputy commandant since the Corps’ inception in 2002, is a former RCIPS officer, teacher and extended service instructor at the Cayman Islands Marine Institute.
After graduating from John Gray High School in 1995, Mrs. O’Garro gained a Bachelor’s of Science degree in psychology and sociology at the University of the West Indies’ Mona Campus.
She is responsible for the overall training programme for adult and cadet members of the Corps, management of permanent staff, headquarters administration, budgetary control, and individual counselling.
Outside the Corps, Mrs. O’Garro is a sports enthusiast, having represented Cayman in track, football and basketball.
‘The cadet programme is an excellent vehicle for youth training, specifically in the areas of discipline, self-reliance, and citizenship, and I hope that young Caymanians seek to take full advantage of this opportunity,’ she said. ‘As a young Caymanian, I am privileged to be able to contribute to national development through the work of this programme.’
Commandant Colonel Philip Hyre commended Mrs. O’Garro on her scholastic achievements and underscored the value she has brought to the Cadet Corps, especially in the area of youth training and development.
