With the use of technology she will transform lives one person at a time.
In March of 2017, Antoinette Pinder-Darling, a member of the Grant’s Town Seventh-day Adventist Church, completed her doctorate in Educational Teleology Leadership from the New Jersey City University. We congratulate her on her achievement.
Currently she works at the University of The Bahamas as Cataloging and Electronic Resources Librarian. She is also an adjunct professor in the Teacher Education and Journalism and Communication Schools at the university.
Dr. Darling has a very diverse educational background which combines communication with applied technology, library and information studies, higher education, adult workforce and continuing education (all wrapped into one). Her research interests are in online learning/virtual education, emerging technologies, academic librarianship and curriculum studies.
Antoinette is married to Stephen Darling who is her lover, best friend, and life partner. She is also the eldest daughter of Julie Davis and Anthony Pinder (deceased) and has six siblings (four sisters, two brothers). Stephen and Antoinette are active and committed members of the Grant’s Town Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Antoinette is gregarious, kind, energetic, loving and a intellectual person. Antoinette aspired and became the first Bahamian to serve as
the Latin American and Caribbean representative for the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) Global Council for the Americas since June 2016 until her term ends on June 30, 2019. She believes that the Bahamas could benefit from increased visibility among libraries globally by embracing regional partnerships to ensure all of our voices are heard.
A lover of young adults, Antoinette has the discipline, and a desire not only to learn but to “share her knowledge with others” and this vibrant young woman wants to do missionary work in the Family islands and also dreams of becoming a mother.
During her spare time she enjoys making scrapbooks and doing craft work. She said she would like to learn how to sew.
There are some who question about Adventists and other Christians being immunize. Some people believe it is wrong to immunize. What is the Adventist view? In May of 2015 the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventist published the following statement on immunization.
"The Seventh-day Adventist Church places strong emphasis on health and well-being. The Adventist health emphasis is based on biblical revelation, the inspired writing of E.G. White (co-founder of the Church), and on peer-reviewed scientific literature. As such, we encourage responsible immunization/vaccination, and have no religious or faith-based reason not to encourage our adherents to responsibly participate in protective and preventive immunization programs. We value the health and safety of the population, which includes the maintenance of “herd immunity.”
We are not the conscience of the individual church member, and recognize individual choices. These are exercised by the individual. The choice not to be immunized is not and should not be seen as the dogma nor the doctrine of the Seventh-day Adventist Church." [ See official page ]
