A pleasant morning to you all. I must say that I am truly honoured to have been a student of this noble institution, an institution that not only produces world class coaches but great physical education practitioners who have impacted the lives of many students in Jamaica and the world. I would like to express heart felt thanks to the entire staff of G.C. Foster College who have played their part in my physical, spiritual, psychological and emotional development. To the management staff, the teaching staff and the auxiliary staff a special, special ‘big up’ and thanks to you all for the tremendous work that you have and will continue to do. To the students, the future of our country, I would like to encourage you to work hard and never stop believing in your dreams. Always be respectful and obedient to them that have the rule over you; work together, build and encourage each other. I have been a beneficiary of this great opportunity and today I am proud to say that I am a Fostodian. G.C. Foster College has influenced my life greatly to become a professional. As the motto says “mens sana in corpore sano”, a sound mind in a sound body. For those who maybe wondering who I am, many know me as Pastor, Ozil, Bellas and Kemal. Have yourselves a blessed and productive day in Jesus’ Name.

Yours sincerely,


Kemal Russell
