The Montserrat Secondary School (MSS) held its annual send off for the Class of 2012 on Wednesday, July 4 at the Montserrat Cultural Centre.
Moderated by ZJB Journalist Ms. Tanisha Christopher, the three-hour event was filled with speeches, entertainment and awards for and by the 72 young men and women who have completed their secondary level studies.
Keynote speaker Magistrate Veronica Dorsett-Hector, who is also a former teacher and student of MSS encouraged the graduates to ask themselves: Who am I created to be? Where am I going? How will I get there? “You were born for a purpose and your life has value,” she told them.
She admonished them to have strong convictions, to live with integrity and have the passion and determination to succeed. The magistrate recommended that they create a 20-year-plan for their life and break it into stages. “Be willing to adapt your plan to achieve the vision,” she said. Mrs. Dorsett-Hector also stated that serving in voluntary groups, continued reading and learning were essential for growth. “Save and invest what you make now. Find different ways to make money and invest wisely.”
