(CMR) We would like to extend our congratulations to Marjorie Scott, the recipient of the 2019 Golden Apple Lifetime Achievement Award. With over 40 years of dedication to education in Cayman, she’s a real superstar!
“As a PE teacher, Marjorie addressed both the physical and emotional needs of her students. Although it wasn’t part of her job description, she always showed extra care by ensuring that her students were well-fed, particularly when they were required to remain after school for practice. Often going the extra mile to cook and provide meals and snacks, she was more than a teacher. She was a mentor, a mother, a motivator.”
“Mrs. Marjorie Scott has worked at every primary school in Grand Cayman, including the middle school and the high school. She has devoted over 40 outstanding years of service to the children of the Cayman Islands. Many of whom have gone on to excel in their careers as politicians, doctors, lawyers and engineers.”
Originally an English teacher due to her love of sports she transitioned when needed to be a Physical Education teacher for the last half of her teaching career.
From 2002 in 18 years she guided her schools to win the inter primary sports day championships 11 times. That’s 61% of the inter primary sports days in that time frame.
To end her career, in the last 7 years with Prospect Primary they were victorious 3 times which represents 43% of the inter-primary sports day championships! (They has never won prior to her tenure).
She graduated from the Mico Teachers College in Jamaica in 1977 and Scott is married to Tony Scott and has two children – Shomari Scott and Mikana Scott.
