KINGSTON, Jamaica — Minister of Education, Youth and Information, Fayval Williams, has extended deepest condolences to the immediate family, staff and students of Kingston College on the passing of vice-principal Juliet Wilson.

Williams said her death was a significant loss to the Kingston College family, whom she served for more than 25 years.

She noted also that there were innumerable testimonials that referred to Wilson's dedication, passion and professionalism as a teacher and administrator and also of her care and compassion for the welfare of students.

In her letter to Principal Dave Myrie, the minister assured him that the ministry stood ready to provide any necessary support during this difficult time.
