THE LAUNCH OF THE DR. RICHARD JONES SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME
July 12, 2022
Through a virtual scholarship awards ceremony and panel discussion, we not only celebrated
our 5 outstanding scholars from the College of Agriculture, Science and Education (CASE), but we
celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Richard Jones. Dr. Richard Jones was a long serving Seprod
board member who contributed significantly to the development of the farming community in St.
Through this special scholarship, Britannia Facey, Antonio Spence, Camille Lindo, Carlos Reid
and Jenecia Tucker received one year of tuition and are able to continue their studies in either
Agricultural Science or Veterinary Science.
We were pleased to have leaders in the agricultural
sector in Jamaica join us for the panel discussion themed ‘Food Security: Challenges and
Opportunities for Agribusiness.’ The discussion was both insightful and inspiring, shedding light
on both the needs, and the resources available to agricultural workers. By sharing knowledge and
resources, Seprod Foundation is committed to inspiring our youth to pursue careers in Agriculture.
