Hence, on Friday August 26, 2005, the management and staff of the National Insurance Services along with guests, gathered at the Peace Memorial Hall on the grand occasion of a Book Launching Ceremony for the book ‘NIS MADE SIMPLE FOR SCHOOLS’, written by Glasgow.

Glasgow is no stranger to writing, having written several plays, skits and monologues and two previous books entitled “All that Glitters is not gold” and “Walk Through – A Layman’s Guide to the National Insurance.”

The ceremony started with opening remarks from the programme’s Chairman, Richard Williams. This was followed by an opening prayer by Pastor Aldon Ambrose.

The ceremony witnessed a book review by Professor Dr. Frank Alleyne of the U.W.I and comments by NIS Chairman, Lennox Bowman who emphasized the importance of such outreach programmes and continuous research by the National Insurance Services. Further Comments and commendations on Glasgow’s laudable effort came from the Executive Director, Reginald Thomas and later, from Prime Minister, Dr.Ralph Gonsalves who delivered the feature address.

Dr. Lennox Adams, in a brief address, spoke of Glasgow’s experience in teaching, highlighting her commitment to education, community and youth development.

“NIS MADE SIMPLE FOR SCHOOLS,” serves as an asset in the production of such reading material for students.

Delivering the vote of thanks Glasgow thanked God and expressed her gratitude to the National Insurance Board which sponsored the publication and specific members of staff who provided assistance. She further thanked all those who supported in one way or the other.
