The six awardees had their full tu­itions paid by the C.B. Facey Foun­da­tion.

SIX UNIVER­SITY stu­dents now have an eas­ier way through col­lege as their tu­itions were fully cov­ered by the C.B. Facey Foun­da­tion.

The stu­dents were hosted at a han­dover lun­cheon at the board­room of the PanJa­maican In­vest­ment Trust Lim­ited (Pan-Jam) re­cently. The stu­dents are: sec­ond-year master’s stu­dents of the Caribbean School of Ar­chi­tec­ture at the Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy Ja­maica Lionel Spence, Richard Josephs, Matthew Mac­Far­lane, and Michael Mc­Far­lane; and Edna Man­ley Col­lege of the Visual and Per­form­ing Arts fine arts ma­jor Ly­dia Denny, and ed­u­ca­tion ma­jor Shaniek Bar­clay.

The gath­er­ing was guided through a tour of the art col­lec­tion on the two floors of PanJam. Stephen Facey, chair­man of the CB Facey Foun­da­tion and chair­man and CEO of PanJam, greeted the stu­dents and

their teach­ers af­ter the group watched the com­pany’s re­flec­tive doc­u­men­tary Strong Legacy Pow­er­ful Fu­ture.

The 22-minute piece was com­mis­sioned to com­mem­o­rate the 50th an­niver­sary of the pri­vate-eq­uity com­pany. Facey en­cour­aged the stu­dents to seize this op­por­tu­nity, and to ap­pre­ci­ate the bless­ing they have been be­stowed.

“To­day, the foun­da­tion has placed within your grasp the tools to im­prove your­self, your fam­ily, and this na­tion,” Facey said.
