Dr. Worrell brings multiple perspectives on leadership and is well-prepared to relate to our membership as well as the other health fields with which APA works to heal the world.” — Martha E. Banks, Ph.D.

Whether they are early career researchers, students, members of the public, Frank is dedicated to supporting people, and that is the kind of person you want in charge of the association.” — John Perry, Ph.D.

“I’ve known Frank as a very thoughtful and stabilizing influence at APA. He has served there on the Board of Directors, and he is a quiet, strong voice and a consensus builder. In an era where shrill partisanship damages discourse and impede deliberations, I have (several times) seen him balance the need for inclusiveness of all perspectives with the need to get things done. Although he is an academic and a school psychologist, he really understands clinical practice. He will be good for APA. Indeed, he has been a very effective leader at APA for a long time.” — Brian H.

“I can say that it’s an honour to endorse Frank C. Worrell for the post of President. In 2000, Frank along with two colleagues normed various reading/phonemic tests to be used in our twin island state of Trinidad and Tobago. This was completed along with other essential training programmes and workshops for our entire department. This department — Student Support Services Division — is a division of the Ministry of Education,Trinidad and Tobago, which is the place of Dr Worrell’s birth. This entire activity extended over a period of about two years and was completed gratis to our fledgling islands. This was the motivated action of a grateful son of the soil, Dr Worrell’s way of paying life forward. Paying life forward is a hallmark, a signature of this humble individual, Dr Frank Worrell. For all these reasons and more, I choose to endorse and support Dr. F. Worrell” — Judith Harris, Trinidad and Tobago
