IT IS a special pleasure for me to join Herbert Morrison Technical High School in celebrating the momentous milestone of your 40th anniversary as a secondary institution offering high-school education of the highest quality to the youth of Western Jamaica. I am proud to have been a member of the administration that built Herbert Morrison High as part of one of the most massive programmes of education expansion ever undertaken in Jamaica.
This institution was created with the objective of excellence in mind. It was intended to harness, mould and unleash the talents of our youth for their total development and contribution to their communities and country. I am pleased to see that the school is in fact well on its way to fulfilling this mission.
MOST SOUGHT AFTER
The introduction over the years of various programmes of scientific, technical and vocational studies has made Herbert Morrison Technical one of the best and most sought-after secondary institutions in Jamaica.
The students of this institution continue to distinguish themselves in academics, sports, co-curricular activities and areas of technical skills. Your graduates are leaders and achievers in various vital areas of life in Jamaica and numerous other countries around the world. In these way and more, the school has been a pillar of strength serving the people and educational needs of our country, and western Jamaica in particular, for 40 years. This is a proud record with which the entire Herbert Morrison High family can be pleased.

I offer sincere congratulations to the board of management, principal, staff and students of Herbert Morrison Technical High School as you celebrate your strength and perseverance in promoting a culture of excellence for 40 years. I also salute former principals, past board members, ex-staff and alumni who have contributed in very special ways to growth and development of the school.
