The Minister of Youth Sports and Culture, the Hon. Olivia Grange, has reacted with shock and sadness to news of the passing of the educator and scholar Professor Aggrey Brown.

Minister Grange said Professor Brown "served his people well and had helped to shape Jamaica and the Caribbean region through the training and inspiration he provided to young aspiring journalists and communicators for many years at the Caribbean Institute of Media and Communication at the University of the West Indies, Mona where he also served as Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Education.  I believe every Carimac student would have benefited from Professor Brown's extensive expertise in communications."

Minister Grange referring to Professor Brown's work in media, described him as "a fine writer and broadcaster."

Minister Grange has offered condolences to Professor Brown’s family, friends and colleagues.
