Presentation of John Gray image

Published 8th March 2019, 9:9am

On Monday February 18, 2019 Year 11 Caribbean History students at John Gray High

School received an official photograph of the late Reverend John Gray, MBE, for

whom the school was named. The occasion was made possible through the efforts

of the Cayman Islands National Archive, as well as through the kind and

gracious loan of a photograph from Reverend Gray's daughter, Ms. Elizabeth

Scholefield. To make the presentation on behalf of Reverend Gray's family was

his son, Mr. John Gray who also taught at the institution for several years.

Also on hand from the National Archive was Ms. Charisse Morrison. The brief

ceremony marked a rewarding end to the research efforts of the students who had

been visiting the archive for several weeks to acquire practical experience in

historical research while examining a number of local history topics. Also

present to receive the photograph was Principal Jon Clark and Caribbean History

teacher, Georgia Harding. This year marks 70 years since the establishment of

the school and twenty-seven years since it was named after Reverend Gray.
