Congrats to that Jamaican in the TCI- Syl Thomas

This is kinda off script for me, but I felt the need to give a shout out to this man for his hard work and dedication to service.

A few weeks ago, the Turks and Caicos Islands’ Her Majesty Prison Service named its first Officer of the Year as Mr. Sylvester Thomas, a Jamaican who had been with the service for some time.

Head of the Prison Service Superintendent Ian Sargent commended Thomas who also served in the Jamaican Prison Service. Thomas is regarded by his colleagues as professional, reliable, motivated and dedicated, Superintendent Sargent said.

What is commendable is that the award is one that is initiated by nomination from one’s peers. Officer Thomas received the most nominations from his peers and was presented with a plaque and cash award by Governor Ric Todd on Tuesday February 12, 2013.

As the first winner of the latest initiative by HM Prison Service to reward service and dedication among its members, I am proud of one of the many Jamaicans whose hard work consistently gets overshadowed by the bad-behaving few.

Congrats Sylvester Thomas, keep up the good work.
