A welcome reception was held by the Atlanta Jamaican Association for Lisa Hanna who was the guest of honor at their Jamaica 60th Independence ball.

The reception was held at the Atlanta Airport Gateway Marriott hotel on Friday, August 12th.

Several KC Old boys were on hand to extend a welcome to the Member of Parliament and Opposition Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade.

Among them was Garfield McCook, the founder and CEO of the Jamaica International Independence Foreign Song Competition Inc (JIIFSC).

Also at the reception was the author, Glen Laman, current Atlanta chapter board member and former chapter president who presented Lisa with a copy of his latest book co-written with Dr. Basil Kong titled, The Hero of Fern Gully and other Jamaican Short Stories.

Lisa visited Kingston College in 2012 when she was the Minister of Youth and Culture. She met sixth formers in an interactive forum where she heard some of the burning issues of the day on the minds of the younger generation. She was keen to develop pathways for youth which would lead to their spiritual and economic advancement.
