“A MONUMENT more lasting than bronze” was yesterday erected in Graydon Sealy’s honour, as the Garrison Secondary School was renamed the Graydon Sealy Secondary School in recognition of its first principal’s sterling contribution.
Entrusted with the leadership of a brand new school on September 6, 1975, during the early stages of “newer secondary education”, Sealy set about the task of building an institution that Prime Minister Freundel Stuart yesterday lauded for its achievements.
During the renaming ceremony, principal Matthew Farley said: “Today’s event is a fitting tribute to the instructional leadership of a man short in stature but gigantic in the depth and the height of his dedication, commitment and vision and in the volume of his selfless and sacrificial service which he has rendered to education in Barbados.”
