Residents of the district of Brandon Hill, Clarendon, turned out on Sunday to pay tribute to one of its most prominent citizens ? Hon Glen Christian, founder and CEO of the Cari-Med Group. The event was organised by the leadership of the Privilege Baptist Church and friends of Brandon Hill. Christian was born in Brandon Hill and attended the Brandon Hill Primary. Generations of his family have been members of the Privilege Baptist Church.

Activities involved unveiling of a memorial to Christian at the entrance of the Evelyn Mitchell Infant School Centre of Excellence which was built by the Cari-Med Foundation.

Christian also declared open a health fair organised by a visiting medical team led by

Dr Novlet Davis through the LJDR Davis Foundation.

In September 2010, the Evelyn Mitchell Infant School, named in memory of Glen Christian?s late mother, opened its doors to over 100 students from Top Hill and neighbouring communities. The 7,000sq ft facility was constructed at a cost of approximately J$70 million. The state-of-the art facility includes three classrooms, six bathrooms, a fully functional kitchen and eating area, an auditorium, a library, and administrative offices. The school is operated by the Ministry of Education.
