Since being appointed Principal of Jamaica College in 2006, Mr. Ruel Reid has headed the transformation of the school with a renewed focus on discipline and accountability.
FREDERICK TAMASA, outstanding student at Jamaica College (JC), was on Wednesday selected as the recipient of the Tony Budal Scholarship. The 17-year-old sixth-form science student, who is also a member of the school's quiz team, told The Gleaner that he is encouraged by the recognition and will work even harder. The scholarship is valued at $100,000.
"Growing up in the garrison is not always easy, but I have understood the value of hard work. I learnt very early not to give up easily and to rise above the challenges, and so this scholarship will go a far way in furthering my studies and doing great things," he said following the presentation ceremony held at JC's Old Hope Road, St Andrew.
Peak Bottling Company Limited, first-time sponsor of the Jamaica College track and field meet, through its Purewater brand, is already looking forward to next year's staging of the popular event.
"We are pleased with the outcome of the meet as we were able to reach a wide cross-section of Jamaicans," David Wong, managing director of Peak Bottling, told The Gleaner at the awards ceremony on Friday at the Jamaica College auditorium.
"All in all it was a great meet, and we are already looking forward to next year's meet. We will sit down and look at ways to make it better next January," Wong stated.
