In Memoriam: Dr. Sammy

December 30th, 2010 by admin

Chief Dr. Sammy Enyong, warmly known as “Dr. Sammy”, passed away in Yaoundé, Cameroon, on December 25, 2010. Dr. Sammy proudly presented himself as a “moving monument” of Peace Corps Cameroon because he was a pioneer beneficiary of Peace Corps in Cameroon: Peace Corps Volunteers trained him as a Primary School Teacher, and again as an Agricultural Extension Agent. Dr. Sammy worked as Associate Director of the Education program for 19 years (1987 – 2007). During this period, he supported over 400 Volunteers to serve Cameroonians in various education projects – mathematics/science/computer literacy, English, vocational education, special education, rural, environmental and HIV/AIDS education. Dr. Sammy retired from PCC in January 2007. In his retirement letter, he wrote, “I will continue to remember Peace Corps and particularly the Volunteers I had worked with for the rest of my life!”

Dr. Sammy’s area of specialization was education administration and management, research methods and statistics. Prior to joining Peace Corps, he was a primary-school teacher in Cameroon for four years and a high school Principal/Teacher Trainer and University Lecturer in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria for 10 years. Upon his return to Cameroon he became a University Lecturer in the Ministry of Higher Education (1986-1988). Following his retirement from Peace Corps he worked as Vice Principal at a private Yaoundé institution.

Dr. Sammy Enyong was a cherished member of the Peace Corps community and leaves to mourn a loving extended family and children.
