    Team members of the Jamaica Information Service (JIS), who have distinguished themselves in their respective areas of expertise, copped several major awards this month, solidifying the work of the agency in the delivery of quality media services.

    Leading the charge is communications stalwart and Acting Deputy Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Enthrose Campbell, who received the Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ) veteran’s award at a luncheon held as part of the organisation’s National Journalism Week activities.

    Ms. Campbell, who has served the JIS for 24 unstinting years, was recognised by her colleagues as a role model, an educator and dedicated team leader known for her professionalism, commitment and zest in carrying out her duties.

    She served as Manager for the JIS Television and Radio departments in 1998 and 2000, respectively, which gave her oversight of the Production Division.

    In her capacity as Production Director, Ms. Campbell ensures a coordinated response to State and Official events and she oversees the programming daily to ensure that the output is of high standard.

    The Acting Deputy CEO received the award for Civil Servant of the Year in 2013.

    Meanwhile, Acting Director for the Research, Print and Production Division, Celia Lindsay, walked away with the 2019 Civil Servant of the Year award in the category of senior management.

    Dedicated civil servant and Office Manager, Rosalee Marshall Fraser, who has worked in the public service for 30 years, 18 of those years at the JIS, was a finalist in the category of middle management.

    Ms. Lindsay has had a distinguished career at the JIS spanning 20 years.

The awards ceremony was held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel on November 15.

    She began as a writer at the agency, then went on to King’s House, also as a writer, before returning to the JIS as Manager for the Research and Publications Department.

    Ms. Lindsay says she always strives for excellence and endeavours to have the right approach to doing work that will benefit the nation.

    Her selection was also based on the extent to which she was adjudged to have positively influenced the lives of the persons with whom she interacts outside of work.

    She epitomises the standard of excellence for which the agency is known and has earned the respect of all members of staff and key stakeholders and customers.

    Meanwhile, Writer, Producer, Presenter, Anthony Morgan, was recognised for his outstanding work at the prestigious PAJ Awards, copping the Digicel Award for excellence for reporting on technology.

    He was nominated in five categories for the PAJ Awards, which was the most of any shortlisted journalist.

    Writer, Producer, Presenter, Jamaica Information Service (JIS), Anthony Morgan, received the Digicel Award for excellence for reporting on technology, at the Press Association of Jamaica’s (PAJ) awards ceremony held at the Courtleigh Auditorium in New Kingston on November 23.

    Morgan’s winning feature focused on upgrades to the Water Resources Authority’s (WRA) water monitoring system.

    The project has been aiding the agency in collecting more reliable, timely and accurate data to better manage the island’s water resources.

    An ardent worker, employed to the Radio Department just a month shy of two years, Morgan said he is delighted to be recognised for the work that he loves.

    “This is my first win at a PAJ awards since I started working as a journalist so I won’t forget that moment my name was called. It’s really a motivation for me to continue doing what I’m doing. Quite a few persons have also been congratulating me for even having five nominations this year. I’m just happy I could have gotten one of them,” he said.
