Project Coordinator – Rebuild/Reopen SPHS
Charles E. Cooper, III
Charles E. Cooper III, ’84, Treasurer of SFAA, has been appointed Acting Project Coordinator for Rebuilding/Reopening SPHS. In collaboration with SFAA Chapter in Liberia, he will play a lead role in discussions with the Archdiocese about reopening St. Patrick's High School. Mr. Cooper will act in this role until we find a permanent replacement.
The Project Coordinator for Rebuilding/Reopening of St. Patrick’s falls under the domain of the Project Committee. That committee is organized as follows:
Chair - Project Committee
Project Coordinators - Rebuilding/ Reopening SPHS
Project Coordinators - STC Support
This arrangement will enable Project Coordinators to focus on their assignment while working in tandem with the national organization. Because the schools are in Liberia, the role of the Projects Coordinators in Liberia is critical to the success of SFAA's goals.
CONVENTION 2017 HONOREES PERFORM
SUrgeries in liberia
Dr. Kevin and Mrs. Natu Youh Strathy, STC Class of '86, traveled to Liberia in June to perform reconstructive surgery on children who are severely scarred or have other facial deformities.
Dr. Strathy, a plastic surgeon, along with his wife Natu, a surgical nurse, have performed over 80 surgeries in Liberia since December 2016, free of charge. They dedicate their medical training, time, and limited resources toward healing Liberians who are in desperate need of such medical services.
Dr. Kevin and Mrs. Natu Youh Strathy were honored with a humanitarian award at SFAA's convention in May 2017.
