Tears and cheers


Share post:

HARDLY A DRY EYE was present in the auditorium of the Derrick Smith School and Vocational Centre last Thursday as 20 young people embarked on their journey to adulthood.

After two and three years pursuing secondary education as well as vocational studies in such areas as woodwork, art and craft, agriculture and landscaping, and culinary arts, the success of these special needs students was celebrated with tears and cheers during the graduation at the Lears, St Thomas school.

It was an emotional moment for the students, their families, teachers and friends as secondary school students Russell Kellman, Tashana Bowen, Kyle Rawlins, Hani Riley, Matthew Trotman and Ross Worrell; and vocational students Lorianna Ashby, Delicia Boyce, Mario Corbin, Jovan Douglas, Sueann Duncan, Jamond Edwards, Chaquille Grazettes, Rashid Griffith, Precious Murray, Waide Porte, Tila Skette, Germar Trotman, Roseann Tull and Natasha Ward walked across the stage to collect their diplomas.
