Ambassador Steve Wrensford was born and raised in Middle Island, home of Sir Lee Lewellyn Moore, a stalwart in the Labour Movement and his childhood idol.
Wrensford attended both the St. Paul’s All-Age and the Verchild’s All-Age Schools. Upon graduating he attended the Basseterre High School on Burdon Street. For a short while Wrensford followed in his mother’s footsteps and worked as a substitute teacher at the Sandy Point Primary School. He later moved on to work at the St. Kitts Electricity Department. Wrensford’s career path later led him to the National Agricultural Corporation, NACO where he worked from 1974 until 1985, when he was terminated by the People’s Action Movement for exercising his right to Freedom of Association and Freedom of Speech.
After this demise he decided to pursue his studies at the University of the Virgin Island’s in St. Thomas in January 1986 where he acquired a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Business Management and Master’s in Business Administration.
Ambassador Wrensford’s interest in politics began at a very early age. His family has been deeply involved in political affairs throughout the years. Lillian Dore, his grandmother was very instrumental in Bradshaw’s campaign.
Wrensford and his siblings joined the Young Labour Movement at the tender age of 12 and eventually elevated to the President of Young Labour in Constituency #4 from 1980-1986. He later was appointed Chairman of the Constituency #4 Labour Branch 1984-1986. He again assumed the role of Chairmain of the Constituency #4 Labour Branch in 1996 when he returned home from his studies.
Ambassador Wrensford is all about the development of the people, especially within his constituency. He admired the Labour Movement and Sir Lee Moore’s belief, that if you empower the people you enhance the country. Poverty alleviation has always been a cause dear to his heart. He has always held the view that “If the government can provide sufficient jobs or empower persons to start their own business in an effort to raise their economic status, it will not only be beneficial for them, but also beneficial towards the advancement of the country”. Wanting to bring further appeal and to market his constituency, Wrensford established the M.I. City Festival which ran around the same time as the festival now known as Guy Fest.
He is a cricket enthusiast and has an insatiable thirst for football. Ambassador Wrensford established the first football association competition in Constituency 4. He also organized the first ever island wide volleyball competition in the 1980’s. While studying in St. Thomas, he was the captain of the cricket team, called the MI Rock Masters for three (3) years. The Rock Masters dominated the cricket league becoming champion for those three (3) years. He was also the president of the St. Thomas Football Association. In addition to these, he was also the captain of the UVI Cricket Team and Secretary of the St. Thomas Cricket Association and a member of the Leeward Islands Football Association.
He returned to the federation in April 1996 and assumed the role of Deputy Director of Social Security. In 2008 His Excellency Mr. Wrensford was approved to serve as a distinguished Ambassador to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago representing the beautiful Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis at the diplomatic level.
Ambassador Wrensford who served the institution for twenty years received an award for his indelible contribution to our nation’s development at the Social Security’s 40th Anniversary celebrations. The Social Security Scheme was established in 1978 by the government of the Rt. Excellent Sir Robert Llewellyn Bradshaw. Mr. Wrensford gave St. Kitts and Nevis twenty years of superlative stewardship to the Social Security Scheme. Because of his dedication to the service of our people, our pensioners and workers are much better off. He helped make Social Security stronger, safer and better for all of us.
