ST ELIZABETH, Jamaica - Four schoolboys, praised as heroes for their quick action in carrying their schoolmate Jaheim Colman to a medical facility last week, are scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Andrew Holness on Tuesday afternoon.
The students being lauded as heroes are Khari Green, 13; Gary Bartley, 16; Daejaun Gordon; 16 and Dejaun Powell, 14.
The boys lifted an injured Colman and walked about 500 metres from the school through the busy town of Junction to a doctor's office last Thursday after he was beaten unconscious, allegedly by a grade 11 student for stepping on a shoe.
A source informed Observer Online that the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) contacted BB Coke High School on Monday afternoon to request the boys' presence at the OPM for a meeting with Holness at 1:00 pm.
This latest development follows the Jamaica Observer’s online and print publications highlighting the boys' heroic actions.
