Last week, a "thank you" event was held for Doris Gross, one of the managing partners in Portico Architects, who assisted the Gore Family Foundation as an instructor in the Construction Project Management Course (CPM) that it coordinates at Jamaica College.
This course is the brainchild of Gore Developments Limited Chairman Phillip Gore and is taught by construction professionals who volunteer their time.
The Phillip and Christine Gore Family Foundation(The “Gore Family Foundation”) regards educationas being central to Jamaica’s development and has therefore awarded more than one hundred academic scholarships to students over the past sixteen years.
These scholarships have helped to afford deserving tertiary students facing fiancial challenges at The Mico University College (The “Mico”), The University of the West Indies (“UWI”) and at the University of Technology (“UTECH”), fiancial assistance, helping them to stay in school, focus on their studies, and in many cases, change the trajectory of their lives forever.
The Gore Foundation hosted and recognised Sherona Forrester and Victoria Grant, two very successful former recipients of the Gore Foundation Scholarship, at the Gore Business Centre recently. Gore Foundation’s co-founder, Christine Gore, noted that it was the first attempt by the foundation to reconnect with its many beneficiaries and have them give back to the outreach programmes.
