FIVE outstanding past students were inducted into the St George's College Hall of Fame late last month during a lively banquet that brought back memories of school days for many old boys.
Inducted into the Hall of Fame 2012 were Technical Director of football Neville 'Bertis' Bell for service to the college; the late liaison director Carl Chang for service to the college; the late academic icon Professor Barry Chevannes for community spirit and service to the college; former Maths, Latin and Religion teacher, the Reverend James Hosie, SJ, from the faculty; and the late Minor League Football founder and sports administrator extraordinaire Keith Noad for community spirit and sports.

Selecting the five inductees from a sea of well-deserving nominations proved to be no easy task. However, the Hall of Fame Organising Committee comprising Chairman Donovan Chen See, immediate past chairman Pokar Chandiram, Ambassador KG Anthony Hill, Wayne Wray and Reverend Father Peter McIsaac was equal to the challenge.
