I asked my teacher recruiter, Robin Ramsey to start researching the accreditation process for the school. It is important the children will have the ability to have their education credits count when they go to college.

Four days later I received a call from a client in Florida who introduced me to Leslie Bartley from Arkansas. We set up a time to talk the next week and about 45 minutes into the call he said he wasn’t sure why we were talking although he enjoyed our conversation.

I asked him if he knew anyone who was qualified for the Accreditation  and he said he had Accredited three high schools and one college.

The sun shines on us!

So now we have Leslie on the team and he is already working on the details for the Accreditation. It is a very involved process and includes the campus facilities, the school, the faculty, the library, curriculum, dormitories and even the extra curricular studies.

Leslie will need to spend at least two months a year in Belize to set up and maintain the Accreditation. Fortunately, he won’t have a challenge with that and even his wife is willing to travel with him.

This has been one of the largest challenges of the curriculum and now we are covered!


About Sharyn

As founder of UBU I found my inspiration from my brother Tony who was a foster child, then adopted by my parents when he was five. After listening to his stories about the treatment he received while in the homes I began to think of what it was like for him as well as the thousands of other kids. I decided to start the school after Tony passed on in 2008. It is my tribute to him and all that he did for me. Of all the things I've done in my life, this is the one thing that truly makes me feel like I'm finally on the right path.
