Tribute to UWI Professor Aggrey Brown

November 30, 2011

The Public Relations Society of Jamaica (PRSJ) joins the academic community, the media fraternity and all his colleagues and associates to pay tribute to the late Professor Aggrey Brown.

As a former director of the Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication (CARIMAC) Professor Brown was not only a communicator par excellence, but was also instrumental in working with the PRSJ to ensure that the curriculum at the Institute was expanded to include Public Relations.

His understanding of the importance of the practice, paved the way for Public Relations not only to be taught as an introductory course but as a communication technique in its own right. The public relations and other graduates will long remember him for his vision and foresight, emphasis on professionalism and passion for excellence. Many will also recall the attention that he gave to their own personal development.

Today, hundreds of practitioners in Jamaica and across the region serve in various capacities in a multiplicity of organizations both here in the Caribbean and throughout the world.

The PRSJ is indebted to Professor Brown for his invaluable contribution to the growth and development of public relations in the Caribbean.

We extend condolences to his wife Dr. Suzanne Francis-Brown, his children, and other members of his family, colleagues and friends. May his soul rest in peace.
