Good morning fellow Alumni Leaders,
First let me ask for your forgiveness as my note is a day late. We have been busy!
This past Saturday the board met for our retreat, which lasted almost the entire day. We looked back at the previous year and began to craft the way forward. We are excited about what UJAA is doing and you should be too.
The Jamaica Robotics team, sponsored by UJAA, leaves for Geneva Switzerland this coming Monday evening. We are proud of the students, their schools and alumni associations that have stepped up to help financially. Details were provided in a separate communication from Robotics Lead, Ms. Karlene Largie. We will provide daily updates from Geneva thanks to our MPR team, who will share information as soon as they have it. By the way, we are so proud of the MPR team!.
Next Wednesday, October 12th is the second celebration of Alumni Day. It was officially proclaimed by the Governor General in October 2021. Please reach out to your school and do something with them that day. Ask the Principal to mention it at devotion. Share a message about your group with the staff and students, let them know you are there to support your school! Share your photos with us if possible. Our Membership chair Mr. Dwight Clarke will share more information separately.
