The Most. Hon. P.J. Patterson
While he was an undergraduate at the then University College of the West Indies (UCWI), now University of the West Indies (UWI), he worked at the Gleaner in a summer holiday job, doing sports reporting.
Theodore Sealy, when he was editor of the Gleaner, had a pithy saying: "We train people for Jamaica." That statement was not a boast. it was a simple declaration of the fact that many young people gained knowledge and experience by working at The Gleaner- for many, their first job- an later went on to other activities and occupations, to serve Jamaica in various capacities.
