Educator, Dr Ashburn Pinnock, has formally been installed as president of The Mico University College, the oldest teacher-training institution in the region. 

Pinnock takes over from Professor Carol Clarke who was appointed interim head for the last academic year while the board searched for a replacement for professor Claude Packer.

Dr Pinnock's appointment took effect on September 1.

He previously served as principal of the Sam Sharpe Teachers' College in St James.  

Clarke, the first female to head to the 179-year-old institution, is now the vice-president of academic affairs. 

Last week, Dr Roderick Karl James was installed a Chancellor of the institution. 

He replaces Professor Errol Miller, who was appointed as Mico's first Chancellor in 2009.
