Hundreds of past and present students of the College of Agriculture, Science and Education (CASE), colleagues, friends and family members attended a reflection and vigil service last Thursday to honour the memory of lecturer Cyprian Moncrieffe who was brutally murdered in his flat on the campus earlier this month.
Tributes poured in from representatives of the college's board of management and academia, Ministry of Education, Teachers' College of Jamaica, the Jamaica Teachers Association, Port Antonio and Norwich Primary schools as well as his batch mates and past and present students.
The tributes called for an end to violence in our society and for the perpetrator (s) of this crime to be brought to justice.
Moncrieffe was described as a stickler for discipline, neatness and high standards; and one who loved music and the arts.
He was also remembered as one who gave a lot of jokes.
His high level of organisational skills was commended by his colleagues and those whom he worked with for teaching practice, as at the time of his death he had already put all the plans in place for the present practicum.
The reflection ended with a candlelight vigil in the car park near to his flat where he was murdered.
