About Tai and Sheila Solarin:
Tai and Sheila Solarin were the great educationists and humanists who founded Mayflower School, Ikenne Nigeria in 1956. Like the American Pilgrims who came to America on a ship named Mayflower in pursuit of religious freedom and liberty; Mayflower School was founded on the same premise – an egalitarian, libertarian and secular school where kids are taught self-reliance through hard work and are encouraged to reach for the stars in their life pursuits. Still considered to be one of the best high schools in Nigeria, Mayflower has produced and still producing global (both inside and outside Nigeria) thought leaders in science, engineering, technology, medicine, agriculture etc..
