The foundation of my Jamaican/Caribbean education prepared me for life and living overseas, for all the time I've been abroad. I was always able to call upon on my initial training in many situations,... only to have people comment if my abilities were originally learned while overseas. This most times would just be basic interactive skills, say on the telephone or in meeting and greeting the public. I would respond that my presentation skills were first acquired in Jamaica through good coaching and guidance received from people who cared. Back in my day, young people were well prepared on a consistant basis to be effective in whatever you were charged to do!

Continue to put a stronger emphasis on standard English, spoken and written. The ability to be articulate when working as part of a team is crucial. Effective communication skills is a must in all aspects of our work performance, whether we own our own business or is employed by a corperation.

The young high school & college students are brilliant in the sciences. They are excelling in technology, have great determination and good work ethics. Our strong work ethtics are known aroung the world.We are also competitive and well known for our achievements in the sports of track & field. Continue to be masters in your field of choice.

I believe it's a great idea, our kids need it, something to pull them through after they have done the work.

"To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education. Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from the fiction." - Reverend Dr. Martin King wrote in the Morehouse College Student Paper, The Maroon, in 1947. #MLK #MartinLutherking #educatechild #cef

Mr. Hawthorne and Golden Krust has been immensely successful in business, but also gives back to our community. He and Golden Krust has been great supporters of Caribbean Education Foundation (CEF) initiatives to help poor children go to school in Jamaica. #educatechild

We are SHOCKED and SADDENED by his death and in particular, the manner of his death - - we don't know what people are going through.

Let's not forget to focus on HOW HE LIVED and HIS IMMENSE CONTRIBUTIONS to our people and communities both in the USA and JAMAICA! #LEGACY Mr. Hawthorne's immense Legacy lives forever lives on. May his beautiful soul rest in paradise. #RIP
