Outgoing US ambassador donates US$15,000 to Jamaica press association

(Jamaica Observer) Outgoing United States Ambassador to Jamaica Pamela Bridgewater on Thursday said farewell to members of the press at a luncheon held at her residence in St Andrew.

Recounting what she described as an extremely busy three years of office in Jamaica, Ambassador Bridgewater thanked the media for its coverage of United States-supported events, which included training seminars, engagement with communities, and cultural exposes.

In expressing her appreciation to the Jamaican press corps, Ambassador Bridgewater presented the Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ) with a gift of US$15,000 (J$1.57 million) in support of the further development of its data centre at the organisation’s headquarters.

PAJ President Jenni Campbell thanked the ambassador for her generosity. She said the more than 400 members of the PAJ were appreciative of the gift and would find the expansion of the data centre of tremendous benefit.
