The Virgin Islands Board of Education Mourns the Loss of Our Beloved
Member Oswin Sewer, Sr.
Today the Virgin Islands Board of Education is profoundly saddened by the sudden loss of our Immediate Past Chairman Oswin Sewer, Sr. We extend heartfelt condolences to his wife Laurel, his children, and his vast extended family in St John, the rest of the Virgin Islands and the US Mainland. Mr. Sewer was a steadfast public servant, often crossing the rough seas to attend Board meetings.
The 17th Elected Virgin Islands Board of Education will not be the same without him. Mr. Sewer worked for decades as an educator on St John and was a committed member of the American Federation of Teachers. His former students have emerged as leaders in numerous areas of modern life and they remember him as a caring, thoughtful role model. His unassuming and amiable personality made him easy to work with and he was a dependable advocate for St Johnians.
The members, staff and family of the Board of Education will lift up the Sewer family in prayers as Mr. Sewer transcends to a better place.
