HAPPY TO SERVE: Ephraim Serrette

Ephraim Serrette has been appointed treasurer of the North American, Central American and Caribbean (NACAC) Athletic Association. The National Association of Athletics Administrations of Trinidad and Tobago (NAAATT) president takes over from American Stephanie Hightower.

“I am happy to serve,” Serrette told the Express. “I had offered myself as president at the NACAC Congress in Mexico in July,” he continued, “and that did not materialise. But, as my deceased mother would say, the Lord had another assignment for me. They would have recognised the work of the NAAA, having won multiple First Citizens Sports Foundation Administrations of the Year Awards. Additionally, my education is in management accounting.”
