In mid August reports of the Principal of Baptist High School in the Belmopan area, Norman Willacey engaging in inappropriate behavior with a former student was in the headlines. The situation drew condemnation from various sectors of the population. On August 22 the Board of the Baptist High School met and suspended Willacey pending a 15 day investigation. The time has elapsed and the Board has made its recommendation. Ruperto Vicente is the President of the Baptist Association of Belize.

“The Board of Management for the Belmopan High School has met and certainly a decision has been made on Pastor Willacey as the Principal of the school. That decision has been sent to the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Education has advised not to send out a press release until they have reviewed and made a final decision. I cannot disclose any information because I do not have the details and that has not been sent to my office. We were asked for input from the Baptist Association of Belize based on our investigation. I have information on what we have done on the Baptist Association level and certainly at the Baptist Association level, what we did, and I must take my hat off to Pastor Willacey because he had cooperated with us and given us all the information and he is not denying any of the allegations – he has agreed that the allegation is true and he has owned up to everything that was said and written on the Facebook.”
Willacey had resigned his post in the midst of the controversy. As Vicente said Willacey has admitted to engaging in improper behavior on Facebook with the teenager.
