(TRINIDAD GUARDIAN) – Fay Ann Lyons-Al­varez has stepped down as Chair­man of the In­ter­na­tion­al So­ca Monarch.

News that Lyons, who helmed the com­pe­ti­tion last year and was on­ly re­con­firmed in the po­si­tion last week, had va­cat­ed the post at first came on Tues­day evening but was con­firmed by Lyons her­self yes­ter­day in a so­cial me­dia post.

In the post, she thanked the team that worked along­side her for the 2019 com­pe­ti­tion.

Lyons-Al­varez said, “It was the kind of work that made you smile, and made oth­ers see a piece of their dreams ma­te­ri­al­ized. This year I was not giv­en a time­ly ‘Go-Ahead’ to start and as such my heart can­not be put in­to a rushed prod­uct. I be­lieve in giv­ing the pub­lic a So­ca Monarch they de­serve and with lim­it­ed time it be­comes hard­er to ac­com­plish.”

She con­tin­ued, “I don’t own the event so I do wait on the say so of oth­ers. Nev­er­the­less, my team and I ap­pre­ci­at­ed the ex­pe­ri­ence and wish the own­ers all the best with my re­place­ment. We hope they will at least con­tin­ue a small part of the stan­dard that was ap­pre­ci­at­ed by the Trinidad and To­ba­go pub­lic and those in­ter­na­tion­al­ly and al­ways seek to de­liv­er a prod­uct that is WOR­THY OF OUR CUL­TURE and those that love and sup­port it.”

The event’s or­gan­is­ers are ex­pect­ed to make a state­ment on the is­sue soon.
