Atlanta members came back from Florida’s Big Purple Session with glowing reports of yet another successful edition of this dynamic event. Kudos to Audley Hewitt, Dr. Ivor Nugent and all the Florida brethren. Be sure to read Dr. Cedric Lazarus’ account in this month’s newsletter.
There were also positive comments reported from old boys from all over the globe on the KC Times newsletter and how much they appreciated reading it each month. This month we include our first ever survey of readers in the newsletter. I encourage you all to take a couple of minutes to provide us with some feedback.
Glendon Thompson recently returned from his latest visit to China where he attended the Shanghai World Exposition or World’s Fair. He has written a brief glimpse of his latest adventure in China for the newsletter. Some of you may recall that some years ago Glendon opened the first Jamaican restaurant in China.
There are a several articles about scholarships this month. The George Thompson Memorial Fund which was started by the Atlanta chapter a couple of years ago made four awards this year. There is also the Bishop of Jamaica Scholarship launched by the Jamaica chapter and the Maurice MacDonald by the Toronto chapter.
Old boys from the 1960’s may remember Victor Chang. I recall him being a prefect and later an English teacher before heading off to study at UWI. He is now retiring after 32 years of distinguished work at UWI. We wish Victor a very happy retirement.
Congrats to Barry Gordon on being honored by Jamaica with the Order of Distinction. Gordon is related to the KC Times webmaster, Earl Adams who attended KC at the same time.
Please enjoy these and all the other articles.
