Mayberry Investments proudly announces its significant contribution to the esteemed St. George's College Monsignor Gladstone Wilson Awards Banquet, recently hosted at the Summit Hotel.

The event commemorated the exceptional contributions of past students to their alma mater and broader society.

Monsignor Gladstone Wilson, an unsung hero of Jamaica and the Roman Catholic Faith, was posthumously honoured during the awards ceremony. A luminary figure, Msgr. Wilson's remarkable journey from scholarship admission to St. George’s College in 1918 to becoming the first native diocesan priest is a testament to his brilliance and dedication.

This year's honorees, Deacon Oswald Tai, Herman Athias, and Christopher Berry, received recognition for their outstanding service to the St. George’s College Old Boys’ Association (STGCOBA) and broader society. Their impactful contributions in the fields of banking, business, and finance embody the discipline and dedication instilled by St. George’s College.

Mayberry Investments commends St. George’s College for fostering citizens who excel in academics, sports, music, and voluntary service. The institution has played a pivotal role in shaping the character and success of numerous great Jamaicans, including the founder of Kingston College, Bishop Percival Gibson.

Christopher Berry, Chairman of Mayberry Investments, expressed his pride in the company's involvement, stating, "Mayberry Investments is honoured to support events that recognise the achievements and contributions of outstanding individuals like Monsignor Gladstone Wilson and the distinguished honorees of this year's Awards Ceremony. We believe in fostering a culture of excellence and service, values deeply embedded in the fabric of St. George’s College. I am truly ecstatic to be a part of this journey," he remarked.

St. George’s College, founded in 1850 during turbulent times, has weathered challenges to produce exceptional individuals. The institution's commitment to "heavy manners" coupled with academic excellence is evident in the achievements of its alumni, including Jamaican Independent Scholars and Rhodes Scholars.
