Professionalism bar none
PAT ROSE epitomised professionalism, a consensus arrived at by most of whom he interacted with at the Jamaica 4-H Clubs.
Having served three terms on the board of directors of the Jamaica 4-H Clubs, he served in various capacities, including vice-chairman and chairman of the Finance and Planning Committee.
Rose was also a wellrespected agronomist whose expertise could always be relied on when discussing the organisation’s production systems, enterprises and projects. His balanced perspective on pressing issues was readily embraced as part of board decisions.
Though he possessed a ‘firm’ demeanour, there was also his caring side. His love for 4-H, youth development and achievements was also demonstrated through his presence at most 4-H events including Parish and National Achievement Expos, as well as at the 4-H displays at the Denbigh Agricultural & Industrial Shows.
The Board of directors and staff of the Jamaica 4-H Clubs say a big ‘thank you’ to Mr Pat Rose for his exemplary service to the organisation. This entity is richer for having benefited from his sound advice and direction. We also extend sincere condolences to members of his family and close associates, and hope that they will find peace and comfort in their memories of him.
May his soul rest in peace. Jamaica 4-H Clubs Board of Directors, Management and Staff
