Con­tinue to pro­mote a cul­ture of ex­cel­lence

Jamaica Gleaner - - 40TH ANNIVERSARY -

SINCE ITS es­tab­lish­ment in 1976, Her­bert Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal High School has de­liv­ered ex­cel­lence by de­vel­op­ing the tal­ents and po­ten­tial of many who have passed through its gates in the fields of sports, cul­ture and aca­demics. Proof of this is seen in sports, where Dex­ter Lee, dur­ing his ten­ure at the in­sti­tu­tion, achieved the mo­men­tous feat of be­ing the first Ja­maican male to win an in­ter­na­tional goal medal; in aca­demics in the form of great minds such as An­phernee Wil­son, who is, to date, the only stu­dent to win all lev­els of the renowned Univer­sity of the West In­dies Math­e­mat­ics Olympiad, and many other pro­duc­tive mem­bers of so­ci­ety.

Stu­dents from five parishes jour­ney ev­ery morn­ing know­ing that they will ar­rive at an in­sti­tu­tion that of­fers them the best ed­u­ca­tion that is avail­able in a warm and wel­com­ing at­mos­phere. You have in­vested much in your stu­dents, and I say con­grat­u­la­tions on your 40th an­niver­sary. It is my hope that you will con­tinue to pro­mote a cul­ture of ex­cel­lence through strength and per­se­ver­ance. JOHN KERR-BRYAN Pres­i­dent Stu­dents’ Coun­cil
