Jamaica Gleaner - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

THE JU­NIOR Cham­ber In­ter­na­tional (JCI) St Andrew, in as­so­ci­a­tion with the Na­tional Par­ent-Teacher As­so­ci­a­tion of Ja­maica (NPTAJ), hosted the fifth stag­ing of its Na­tional Out­stand­ing Par­ent Teacher Awards Cer­e­mony last week at the Liguanea Club in New Kingston.

The cer­e­mony was con­cep­tu­alised back in 2012 by then Chap­ter Pres­i­dent Dwayne A. Gayle.

Dwayne Gutzmere, pres­i­dent of JCI Ja­maica; Ever­ton Han­nam, pres­i­dent of the NPTAJ, and cur­rent lo­cal Chap­ter Pres­i­dent Shakeish Gordon warmly greeted the au­di­ence.

Dur­ing the gen­eral as­sem­bly that pre­ceded the awards cer­e­mony, Kerry-Ann Wil­lis and Mario Gal­bert were in­ducted as mem­bers of the St Andrew Chap­ter.

The 14 awardees in­cluded teach­ers and par­ents from the re­gions in Ja­maica, as well as par­ents, teach­ers and ad­min­is­tra­tors from the Rock Hall Early Child­hood In­sti­tu­tion and Best Care Spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion School.

JCI St Andrew is a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion that cre­ates an at­mos­phere within which young peo­ple be­tween the ages of 18-40 can de­velop their lead­er­ship skills. The chap­ter also seeks to pro­vide de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties that em­power young peo­ple to cre­ate pos­i­tive change in the com­mu­nity.
