2014 is off to a great start for the over 1000 students who attend John Gray High School (), thanks to two local businesses WestStar and Thompson’s working in partnership.

WestStar’s CEO and A. L. Thompson’s , Larry Thompson, presented JGHS with a brand new state-of-the-art 50 inch flat screen TV along with WestStar’s Premier Cable TV Service. The initiative is designed to keep students up-to-date on local and international news, current affairs and sports to enhance the classroom learning as well as to ensure that even on stay-in rainy days learning is at the forefront.

Bob Taylor, WestStar’s CEO stated “…We are honored to support our youth, they are the future of the Cayman Islands, and we believe it is the responsibility of the community to support a world-class education; “it takes a village to raise a child”, and this donation is one small step to ensure that students have access to both local and global content to further support work in the classroom. At WestStar we take our responsibility to our youth very seriously.”

Commenting on the future Mr. Taylor added that “At WestStar we are spending millions to have the ability to provide fiber optic connections to every single home in the country in the very near future…we are about to revolutionize video, telephone and Internet connections, think of what it will mean for families, for our youth and for education”.

Larry Thompson’s Store Manager at AL Thompson’s stated, “…there are so many children out there who need access to technology – classroom learning is no longer just in the text books. It is really important for businesses to step-up and donate when possible. We take pride in our youth.”

The staff and students of JGHS were very excited and thankful for the offering. Principal Lyneth Monteith said “…It is fortunate to have the support of our community in providing additional resources. These resources will enhance the experiences we provide for our students and we are extremely appreciative of these donations.”
