MESSAGE FROM MARCIA SCOTT nee BUTLER:
From: Anne Brown [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
Hi to anyone who was at Knox College, Spalding (up a very steep rocky hill) when I was a VSO teacher at Knox in 1964-65. As a volunteer, I earned just £2 a week, which didn't go far. I helped with classes, with the Guides, and as Dormitory mistress for the girls - with a hibiscus growing outside my window which attracted a humming bird each evening before supper.
I have many vivid memories of my time there: Rev Davidson and his gentle wife Jean, the Rev Schlobohm and his cheerful busy wife and their children, Miss Ewing (Scottish country dancing in incredible heat), an English lady Maths teacher and her smaller Jamaican husband, two teaching sisters also from England, a Peace Corps swimming instructor, Dick Letarte, a Canadian volunteer teacher, George and Pauline Scott, three European students, the Fogls (Zdenek, Alena and Rene), the sports master John and his wife Margaret who was pregnant while I was there, so I had to take over some of her classes.
Sadly, I was no good at netball, but the Knox College girls were.
There were also two boys from Watford there that year, my home town in England by coincidence. Another pair of brothers came from Grand Cayman (Steve? and ?). When I was in Nassau about 12 years ago, I met their uncle and asked after them. Sadly, he said one had died the previous year from cancer. So sad, they were such excellent students.
And what happened to three lovely looking sisters, Joy, Hope and Blossom? And also to the Head Boy, Ronald? He was heading for university and a great academic career, I am sure.
I should love to hear from others there at the same time. I recall a very active Orchid Society, a Car Mechanics Club, and a Body Building Club, none of which appealed to me, I hasten to add!
Anne Brown in England

Hi guys, I am trying to solicit contributions to assist Patricia Markland, 28 yrs Old past Knoxite "Class of 94". She was diagnosed with Neuro Endocrine Carcinoid Tumors since December 05. It originated in her stomach and has spread to her spinal cord causing severe breathing and circulation problems. Her medication cost $8,700 per unit (5 doses). Patricia however needs 6 doses per day to survive. Presently all she is on is morphine for the severe pains as that is all she can afford right now.
I went to see her on Saturday and for those of you who know her you will remember that funny high spirited person well nothing has changed but her appearance. She is of high spirit and still as funny as before, I wanted to cry but I could not because of the unbelievable and unsurmountable strength and faith that she possesses. It takes her a while to get around her room but she is trying. She was working with RGD until a couple months ago when her condition got worse.
She really needs our help so could you all take a little time from your busy schedule to forward this to ALL THE KNOXITES you are in contact with. Who knows you may have friends and family who are willing to give to a worthy cause. Spread the word around. Times are hard, but the little you give no matter how small will go a long way and I am sure she would be very grateful. For those of you who are willing to help could you please email me and we can make arrangements as to how to get the funds to her. I have a contact number for her, but she is not always able to talk because the cancer alters her hormone level so today she will do ok and tomorrow well you can never tell, so if you would like to talk to her email me your numbers and I'll past it on so she can call to express her thanks and gratitude to you.
I will leave you all with a quote " A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out", Patricia needs some real friends now so make a stand and make your presence be felt. We are lucky to have health and strength so I am encouraging all of you to make the best of your time with family and friends cause you never know how long we have left with them. Set aside a time of the year/month/week/day/hour/second just for your family/friends/loved ones. Tell them or remind them how much they mean to you before it is too late. Thank you all and have a wonderful day and may the Lord increase your blessings abundantly.

A TRIBUTE TO AUDLEY FRECKLETON, BY DR. RONALD (JEFF) McLEAN:
On my second day at Knox I hurried to my homeroom as soon as the bus arrived on campus and saw this student peering through the window. This student was Freckleton and apparently like me, he had left his brand new school bag in the classroom after all the excitement of our first day at high school.
While trying to figure out how we could get the bags before classes started, an upper-class student came and asked what two "grubs" were doing there. After we explained he asked if we wanted them and naively we said yes only to have him grab Audley and throw him against the door!! Well Freckleton would not go for this and they started to fight!! That was when I knew that even though he would not bother you, being a humble and quite person by nature, he most certainly would defend himself!!
From that day day on we became very good friends, spending a lot of time together, sharing the same classes and eventually the same courses when we got to make choices as senior students. Together at one time, we were the only two students in the Chaplain's photo club - taking some very memorable photos at Knox!!
After I left for University we corresponded for quite sometime but then this eventually ceased and until the funeral I have not been in his presence or seen him since I left Knox. Next week will be 31 years!! On the last occasion of which I inquired about him I was told that he was living in the Mid-West. As such it is quite unfortunate that in the end we were living in the same city yet did not get to meet. Had I not seen the photos at the funeral I would not have had an idea of what Freckleton looked like as an adult.
This however is not all bad since I will now always remember him as the baby-faced boy with the big afro, and a love for the girls, things scientific and photographic!! May he now Rest in Peace and enjoy the Peace that Passeth All Understanding.
Walk Good Audley,
Ronald (Jeff) McLean, BDS , MD

I had the pleasure of spending 12 years at school at Knox - Junior and High School. I grew up with Myrna Roberts, Gywn Jones, Michelle Lowe, Carl Graham and many other. I had Mrs. Swaby and Mrs. Bent as my first teachers. These years were the best years of my life.
I fondly remember the Dr & Mrs. Davidson and the many stories they told of the early days of Knox. As a adult I can now fully appreciate their vision and dedication to have completed such a massive undertaking.
I will always be gratefull to have had the learning experiences I had at Knox.

Hi it's Amoya Harris here , for those who know me. I am living in Birmingham, England. I left Knox 1995. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Send me a mail and lets have a chat about past years.
My name is Artia Scarlett. I attended Knox High 1990-1995 and then attended Knox Community College for three years. I was the Head Girl Prefect for 1994-1995. I really enjoyed my time at Knox College. I must say that Knox has contributed greatly to my personal development. I have kept a copy of the student's list for 1994-1995. Every now and then I look at the list and I remember my schoolmates and the fun we had when Mrs. Jones and Grampps ( Mrs. Jones' dog), Mrs Chamberlain, Mrs. Baker, Mrs. Malcolm and Mrs. Graham were there. I wish that Knox continues to be the one of the best schools in Jamaica.
Hey Christon, I remember you and every body from the Graduating Class of 1995.
Have a great Christmas!
Class of 1995.
Currently in Nassau, Bahamas.
I would like to extend my sympathies to all who were affected directly and indirectly by the tragic acts of terrorism in New York and Washington on September 11, 2001.
I am deeply saddened that such atrocities exist. As a people we must unite and excel only for freedom, democracy and peace.
I know that the impact that such an event will have on our island of Jamaica will be tremendous and as such we as Jamaicans should attempt to do everything possible to uplift and better our country.
I pray that God will continue to bless and keep us throughout this changing point of our society.
Cadine Ferguson (Williams)
As token of love and all the blessings from above, I will continue to pray for you.

My name is Cadine Ferguson (Williams) a member of the graduating class of 1993. Over the past couple of months Nydia Graham, Ainsley Williams, Frederick McClean and myself have been contemplating whether or not to initiate the planning of a reunion for our graduating class. We have decided that it would be a very good idea, and as such, we would love to receive some form of feedback from anyone who graduated with us, and those who have already held their reunions.
Most importantly, we would love for our form teacher, Mrs. Malcolm, who is now the Principal of Knox Junior School to contact us and assist us in the planning of this event.
Please note, in your feedback messages please state preferred locations, time of the year, length of the event, and the amount of money that you would be willing to spend on tickets.
Also note the proceeds will be going towards both Knox College and Knox Junior School.
I can be contacted at email@example.com
Nydia can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be able to contact Ainsley and Fredrick at a later date.
Thank you for your time.
As token of love and all the blessings from above, I will continue to pray for you.

Tribute to Helen Duncan-Stills:
Tribute To My Teacher,
A Thousand pleasant memories rush to my mind when I remember this phenomenal Woman.
A very commanding person, with the charisma that would have melted the toughest heart, a vocabulary which would send you home to consult your dictionary. A smile that was worth a million dollars, and the ability to encourage every lost soul.
She taught me English Literature, and she was my speech coach, my only wish is that I could find the two gold medals I won for speech at the National Speech Festival. If only I could find them, I am sure they would be priceless.
I will mention the names of a few others who with me were her prized speech students. If only she could see us now and know how much she influenced our lives.

Things like this are always tough, whether you knew the person or not. I'm always trying to get to the bright side of things and while I'll be mourning this loss, I see this as an opportunity to encourage you to *seek* out all those Knox people (and anyone else in your life for that matter) who mean or meant something to you and have impacted your life in some way.
Moreover, this is a good time to renew or begin an active membership in our alumni organization. It was #5 or so on my priority list and it is now number 1.
I see some familiar names on the list Ava used, and I'd like to say hi to all of you. It's good to know we all have email and keeping in touch is real simple. If you want to say hi, just hit reply and type something, otherwise, God bless you all in your
