In 2012, under the presidency Arthur Williams, the MCOBA Hall of Fame was launched. Since then, the Hall of Fame (HOF) Induction Ceremony has become the premiere event on the MCOBA annual calendar of events.
The goal is to shine light on the lives of those extraordinary individuals, holding them up as characters for others to model and aspire to in propelling the development of a greater Jamaica.
- Individuals who have had a significant impact on the evolution, development, and direction of the school.
