in praise of Rusea's stalwart Seymour Panton

Published:Tuesday | August 2, 2016 | 12:00 AM


I would like to acknowledge a great stalwart of my alma mater, Rusea's High School, in high court judge Seymour Panton. This man has consistently and almost singlehandedly looked after all the soccer teams which come to Kingston to play in the Olivier Shield.

He is very active for the school in many other aspects of students' lives. Justice Panton might be patriotic to country, but he has been very vocal in support of his school, of which he was head boy. His indomitable presence and spirit are treasured and revered by all of us. We all wish him well in his retirement.

Anywhere Justice Panton goes, he speaks of his alma mater with dignity and pride. We need to tell him thanks for the selfless service he has rendered in the name of Martin Rusea's school. In the annals' of our history we cannot afford to forget him.

Many have contributed to the school in different aspects of the life of the schoolchildren, but he is special and exemplary. He is truly a distinguished and amazing luminary who has been a trailblazer in his chosen career as a judge for decades.

We the members of the Rusea's family are pleased with your dedication to our fine institution.
