By Aaron Humes: Educator and stalwart of the former Belize Technical College (BTC), Owen Morrison, has passed away.

Morrison was one of the first teachers and later principal at “Technical” and was a serious contributor to the education of many students.

Morrison wrote to Amandala publisher Evan X Hyde in 2004 that the College was first established in 1951 and at its height produced some of the very best in the vocational and technical fields as well as top athletes on its sports facilities.

But according to Morrison, the College declined due to neglect from Belmopan and jealousy from other institutions and it ultimately became amalgamated into the University of Belize in 2000. Its campus is presently shared between the University’s Faculty of Science and Technology and the Institute for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (ITVET), Technical’s spiritual successor.

Morrison was also a former Chief Executive Officer in the Government of Belize. May he rest in peace.
