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!

Mount Olivet Boys’ Home Embarking On Herbal Teas Project

Published:Tuesday | April 17, 2018 | 12:00 AM

The Mount Olivet Boys’ Home is poised to establish a herb farm, following the donation of plants and a proposal for purchase of the harvest by local tea manufacturer, Perishables Jamaica Limited (PJL).

“We’re planting the seed and will watch it grow, and reap and create a good herb farm that we can build a long-term business relationship from. We do this on an ongoing basis across Jamaica,” PJL managing director, Norman Wright, said.

Wright, who handed over rosemary and peppermint plants to the Home recently, was upbeat about the prospects of the project and informed that the company buys herbs from farmers, and “based on our knowledge of the environment here at Mount Olivet, they will prosper here”.

Major Alicia Cooper – Challenge accepted

BY KIMBERLEY HIBBERT
Jamaica Observer, Monday, April 16, 2018

 

MAJOR Alicia Cooper is committed to positively shaping the lives of youngsters and Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) recruits through her role as the first female detachment commander in the history of the JDF.

But this God-centred, family-oriented and hard-working woman did not always have an interest in the army; in fact, she told All Woman that she aspired to be a chef and took to cooking [as much as she could] as she thought it would prepare her for a culinary career. (more…)
