Dear Members of the UTech, Jamaica Alumni Community,

We encourage you to support the 16th Annual hosting of the Relay for Life by the Jamaica Cancer Society. The event will be held from 6 pm on Saturday June 2, to 6 am on Sunday, June 3, 2018.

Of course the main reason to support Relay for Life is the support we provide for the fight against cancer, through the Jamaica Cancer Society, and remembering cancer survivors as well as the families of those who lost their battle with the disease.

Still it doesn’t hurt to note the special connection Relay for Life 2018 has with our University, UTech, Jamaica. (more…)

Anthony, The Friendly Cop – Police Constable Brightens The Day Of Many
In Half-Way Tree

AnthonyTaylor

UTech Ja Alumnus Anthony Taylor, Jamaica Gleaner 30-04-2018

Published:Monday | April 30, 2018 | 12:00 AM Jodi-Ann Gilpin/Gleaner Writer

More than a decade after he was abused by members of a police team, Anthony Taylor is trying his hardest to help change the image of the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), and he is doing it from the inside.

Having joined the JCF three years ago, Taylor, now a constable, is providing a spark in Half-Way Tree, St Andrew.

His smiles, frequent handshakes and pleasant greetings brighten the morning for motorists and pedestrians in the heavily trafficked area near the transport centre.

“He is friendly, full o’ manners and he knows how to deal with people. Him a good police,” said Kemar Bennett, a vendor who operates close by the transport centre where Taylor is stationed.

Over Seventy (70) Alumni of UTech, Jamaica visited our campus today, Wednesday 2nd May, 2018 to share goodwill with our University on a special and important occasion in the life of our University.

Though inappropriate to share event details online, we wanted to say a BIG “Thank You” to all our Alumni—, those who came by, those who were late and maintained good humour, and those based locally and overseas who couldn’t attend, yet emailed to wish us well.

Your LOVE for your Alma Mater couldn’t be more tangible. LOOK…Faculty of Science & Sport (FOSS)  Alumni Couple Gavin Palmer and wife Neco Gordon-Palmer ‘2015 showed up with Baby Alumna Naomi Palmer all of 1 year and 4 months. She came to check out her future University!!!

The event feedback was A1A. Our #UTechJamaica #Alumni did us proud!

UTech, Jamaica cannot THANK YOU enough!
