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.
