The legacy and future functions of The Most Hon PJ Patterson, former Prime Minister of Jamaica, received a historic endorsement during last week’s sitting of The University of the West Indies’ Regional Finance and General Purposes Committee. Since his official retirement from politics, Mr Patterson has emerged as a prominent figure in UWI alumni matters and serves as patron of the University’s Global Giving Programme—an initiative created four years ago to raise money regionally and globally for financially distressed but deserving students. In addition, Mr Patterson’s donation of US$100,000 established The PJ Patterson Endowment Fund to provide scholarships for students to spend up to a year at another UWI campus, to re-create the spirit of regional integration.
