Kingston College now boasts a new, modern entrance way that welcomes staff, students and visitors as they enter the North Street campus.
The project was spearheaded by the KC Old Boys via a committee led by Michael McMorris, who headed up the committee that included architect, Douglas Stiebel; Project Manager, Elvis Robinson; Teddy Moncrieffe who provided grill work; as well as Principal Dave Myrie and Florida chapter’s Audley Hewett.
The project was completed in early October and palm trees were planted on the outside of the new walls. The very next day, it was noted that the palm trees were missing, having been involved in praedial larceny – the theft of crops.
The original project to refurbish the gate was quickly expanded to include paving of the driveway when the glaring contrast between the new gate and the driveway was realized.
Thanks to all who contributed to this effort by donations of time, talent and treasure, everyone can now enter KC’s North Street gate with pride.
Now that the new entrance is completed, the old fence stands out in stark contrast. I have been informed that Audley Hewett is now on the case and an initiative to replace the old fence is about to be undertaken.
