‘Old boys’ reunion

Social Share

It was like an old boys’ reunion for Harrisonians and Lodge boys when Major Sam Headley celebrated his 85th birthday at his St George home recently.

Stories abounded about Major Headley’s days and escapades as a student at The Lodge School in St John, back when that school accommodated boarding students and black faces stood out among the student population.

The birthday boy also spent 16 years teaching at Harrison College, before joining the Government service. Major Headley served as Permanent Secretary for defence and security in the office of Prime Minister Errol Barrow.
