Our Story

How We Got Started

Although we are no longer living in Jamaica, we are still devoted to our homeland; not only at the national level but also at the level of the communities. A group of us in February 2016 saw where our Alma Mater needed assistance in preparing the students for a rapidly changing world. We created the Bethany Past Students Association, USA, Inc. to be the vehicle to respond to this need. We partner not only with the school, but also with the community to prepare the students for a productive future.
