STATHS NE 2021 YEAR IN REVIEW


Although the COVID-19 Pandemic had been moderated, the Delta Variant strain became the dominant strain that kept many schools from having in-person classes. As such, virtual classes were still ongoing at St. Andrew Technical High School (STATHS) and most of the schools in Jamaica. However, despite the continuous drawbacks posed by this deadly virus, STATHS NE Alumni Members continued to fundraise and contribute in financial and material patterns to help the students and faculty to continue in as standard a setting as possible. STATHS NE was able to carry on in 2021 as we did in 2020; and continued our fundraising activities without missing a beat.

STATHS fundraising and other ventures planned for 2021 included:

• A Drive-by Fish Fry
• The Annual Family Fun Day Picnic at Eisenhower Park
• Participating in the UJAA Raffle
• Continuing the sale of STATHS Memorabilia
• Supporting the STATHS Solar Program
• Continued fundraising to purchase a School Bus
• Donation to the St. Vincent’s and Grenadines Volcano Relief Fund
• Donation to the STATHS Trust Fund Inaugural 5K Run/Walk
• Providing a scholarship to UJAA High School Graduates Award Program

The Year 2021 was also a milestone year in which STATHS celebrated its 60th Anniversary. The Public Relations Committee launched a “60 Cheers for 60 Years” Campaign, where for over sixty (60) days, they shared historical facts about the inception of STATHS on the STATHS Facebook Page. They also paid Tribute to all the principals who served at the school since its inception. STATHS NE President then continued the celebration of STATHS’s 60th Anniversary by recognizing several STATHS Alumni members for their contribution to the school and the Alumni Association.

STATHS 60th Anniversary was also celebrated with a virtual fundraising gala event where all five (5) STATHS Alumni organizations collaborated to kick off the “Solar Program Project.” This collaboration was a historical event since at no time in the school’s history have all the Associations ever banded together in such a remarkable manner.

Wayne Thomas (Class of ’84), funded and over saw a State-of-the-Art Renovation of the Boys’ and Girls’ Changing Rooms at STATHS. He also donated a Ride-Along lawnmower to STATHS NE, which is to be presented to the school. Thanks also to the families of Anthony Kitchener and Carline Prendergast, who provided funds to the STATHS NE for Scholarships on behalf of their late family members who were STATHS Alumni. Scholarships were also donated by STATHS NE, STATHS NE members and other graduates who have consistently donated annual scholarships to STATHS Students.

STATHS NE Member Cedric George (Class of ’75) was presented with an Award for Service to UJAA, at the UJAA 31st Anniversary Gala Luncheon on Sunday, December 19, 2021.

This year our fundraising activities were overwhelmingly supported by our members, their families, and friends, and for that, we are grateful. Thanks also to all the volunteers who went above and beyond in their services and donations, which allows STATHS NE to continue giving back to STATHS.
