Kenya school appoints first female leader

Lydia Wanjiku recently became the first female to head a post-secondary school associated with Churches of Christ, leaders said.
The Board of Governors of the Kenya Christian Industrial Training Institute, or KCITI, named Wanjiku to its top administrative position. She succeeds missionary Berkeley Hackett, who resigned after 14 years of administration to return to full-time church work and preacher training.
Wanjiku is a graduate of the 1,000-student school, an accredited two-year Christian technical college in Nairobi, Kenya.
She grew up in the slums of Nairobi and was the first student to enroll when KCITI opened its doors in 1991, according to a news release. Wanjiku hopes to improve the school’s finances and help in its transformation into a four-year Christian technical university.
