MOTTO: “Esse Non Videri”
MISSION: Empowering our sisters, the future leaders
BACKGROUND: The Montego Bay High School Alumnae Association of New York Incorporated (MBHSAA of NY) was established in April of 2014 by a group of dedicated Montego Bay High School past students with a passion for helping our alma mater. Since its inception the group has bonded as a sisterhood based on mutual respect and the common goal of developing a community where we can come together to share our joys, ideas, and the act of giving back to our immediate community here in the United States, MBHS, and ultimately Jamaica. MBHSAA of NY is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization operating as an independent group that has pledged to support our alma mater which provided the platform for our successes.
PURPOSE: We believe that as a group, we can be instrumental in procuring funds to assist the school and also provide scholarships to students. We will assist our beloved alma mater to the best of our ability so as to ensure that MBHS will continue to produce ‘WOMEN OF DISTINCTION’
We will work independently and with other groups to ensure implementation of viable projects that will enhance the educational pursuits of our alma mater.
GOAL: To promote and foster pride, loyalty, and lifelong commitment to the school and continued relationships among its graduates within the Tri-State and surrounding areas.
VALUE: Underlying all that we do is the belief that the value of education is the well-being of society. We value commitment to integrity, diversity, and service to humanity.
MEMBERSHIP: Membership is open to all former students of Montego Bay High School. Applications for Associate Membership from spouses, immediate family members of past-students, and supporters that display interest in the work of the association are approved at the discretion of the Board.
OPERATIONS: The Association is managed by a Board of Directors. These officers are President, Vice President, Director of Operations, Director at Large, Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Public Relations Officer, and Ambassador. The Committees are the Executive Board, Finance, Social Planning, IT, and Membership. All other committees are considered Special Committees which are formed by the President as the need arises. The President is an ex-officio member of all committees.
Meetings are held on the third Sunday of every month.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
