Leo Gilling is known to many as a self-directed leader and event’s organizer, an exceptional team player and a charismatic people person. His vast repertoire of knowledge and skills in representing the needs of others, his keen understanding of the unique problems confronting diverse groups, and his willingness to dedicate his time and expertise in finding solutions, have equipped him to serve as a commissioner in the political arena.

Mevon E. Grant  Member of the SSTC PSA, NY Chapter

An eager and passionate advocate for the advancement of any organization or community with which he is involved is an appropriate description of Mr. Leo Gilling, who I first met during our college years at Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College in St James, Jamaica. Mr. Gilling’s rise to leadership continued and expanded beyond college years, as he voluntarily shouldered the task of exploring means and grasping opportunities to support education in his home country and the underserved at any level. Mr. Gilling migrated to the United States and furthered his education, but his dedication to “giving back”, his personal mantra, superseded all borders and distance. He went on to form, lead and participate in organizations whose goals were aimed at advancing the welfare of education and health. (more…)Mevon E. Grant Member of the SSTC PSA, NY Chapter

Grethel Bradford Ed.D, M.A, LCPC,ACS

I have known Leo Gilling for over thirty-nine years. Leo is a visionary, who refuses to see obstacles as anything other than challenges and opportunities for growth. Over the years, he has remained focused on his purpose of advocacy, consistently placing the interest of others in the spotlight. In his quest for equity, he remains undaunted by those who would ignore the plight of the disadvantaged. It is indeed rare to meet an individual who is intuitively aware of and sensitive to the needs of others and who will systematically address areas of discrimination against the underprivileged. He has always been involved in a project aimed at making the lives of others better. (more…)Grethel Bradford Ed.D, M.A, LCPC,ACS

Dr. Sylvester Bowie

As a student at Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College, Leo fancied himself to be a sprinter and thus he was a man on the move. Since he graduated and over the last 35 years plus, I have watched Leo going places like the sprinter he was, as he has demonstrated the keen awareness (with the sprinter’s eyes) of thing that need to get done. He has started and run restaurants in the Los Angeles area, engaged in the founding of a Sam Sharpe Teachers ‘ College Alumni Association and actively engaged in and offered leadership to the Jamaica Diaspora group with a laser-like focus on education and culture.
