The ASENATH E. NELSON CENTER FOR EXCELLENCE will comprise the existing ASENATH E. NELSON Special Education Unit established in 1978 to address the needs of children with learning challenges, and a ICS’ LifeSEED Club to promote Life Skills Empowerment and Entrepreneurial development training.
The Asenath E. Nelson Special Education Unit was established in 1978 upon her return from Wales where she studied Special Education. The goal of the Unit is to provide holistic education to children with special needs from within the Harbour View community and its extended communities. Its programs and resources are funded primarily by the School of Hope, and the Ministry of Education. The students of the Unit are fully integrated into all the programs and activities of the Harbour View Primary School. Mrs. Nelson who went on to secure double Master’s degrees from Nova Southeastern University in Florida - in Teaching; and in Special Education in 1983, remained committed to the vision of the Unit to also serve as a teaching lab for training student teachers; and was a frequent visitor and guest speaker, even after her retirement.
