Kingston, 12 September 2019 – In an effort to educate the nation on the life and work of the late Honourable Louise Bennett-Coverley (Miss Lou), Fontana Pharmacy has collaborated with the Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport to distribute a ‘Miss Lou storyboard’ to over 1,700 schools in Jamaica at the Primary, Secondary and Tertiary level.

Minister of Education Karl Samuda says “I am delighted to receive & disseminate this Storyboard to our schools. It will undoubtedly raise awareness and deepen appreciation of the courage, contribution & conviction of the cultural icon that is Louise Bennett-Coverley.”

Miss Lou remains Jamaica’s greatest and most beloved cultural icon ever. The nation celebrated her 100th birthday on September 7, 2019. In her honour, a storyboard has been created to highlight important aspects of her incomparable contribution to Jamaican Culture.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport Olivia Grange both contributed their treasured memories of how Miss Lou portrayed Jamaican culture and instilled national pride. Others such as Mervyn Morris and Tony Rebel, also discussed the impact of Miss Lou’s work on Jamaican and West Indian Culture. Their sentiments are captured in this dedication in text written by Fontana Chairman Kevin O’Brien Chang.

A framed storyboard will also be given to government Ministries, Embassies, Parish Libraries and major Jamaican Universities and Colleges. A downloadable digital version will also be available on the Fontana Pharmacy website: https://fontanapharmacy.com.
