Cel­e­brat­ing growth and de­vel­op­ment

Jamaica Gleaner - - 40TH ANNIVERSARY -

THE 40TH an­niver­sary of Her­bert Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal High School of­fers an op­por­tu­nity to re­flect, rem­i­nisce and cel­e­brate the growth and de­vel­op­ment of the fledg­ling sec­ondary school, started in 1976, into the stel­lar tech­ni­cal high school in Ja­maica with more than 1,500 stu­dents en­rolled in 2016.

I have been priv­i­leged from 2004 to see it firmly es­tab­lished as a for­mi­da­ble ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion pro­vid­ing a wide swathe of aca­demic, tech­ni­cal and vo­ca­tional sub­jects. Her­bert Mor­ri­son has ac­com­plished its mis­sion of pro­vid­ing each stu­dent with hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence in at least one vo­ca­tional or tech­ni­cal skill re­quired in this tech­no­log­i­cal era.

... a for­mi­da­ble ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion pro­vid­ing a wide swathe of aca­demic, tech­ni­cal and vo­ca­tional.

On be­half of the board of gov­er­nors, I ex­tend hearti­est con­grat­u­la­tions and thank Almighty God for the ded­i­cated aca­demic, ad­min­is­tra­tive and an­cil­lary staff, past and present, who have guided and served Her­bert Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal High as it evolved over these 40 years into a tech­ni­cal sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion par ex­cel­lence.

The in­no­va­tive vi­sion, en­ergy and commitment of the present prin­ci­pal, Mr Paul Adams, and the ded­i­cated staff, board mem­bers, alumni and par­ents en­sure that Her­bert Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal High School will achieve even greater success pro­mot­ing a cul­ture of ed­u­ca­tional ex­cel­lence for many more decades. VERON­ICA T. MOR­RIS Chair­man Board of Gov­er­nors
