Pro­fes­sion­al­ism bar none

Jamaica Gleaner - - CLASSIFIED­S -

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
