Jorge Espat resigns as President of SJC

Jorge Espat

After a two-year period as president of St. John’s College, News Five has confirmed that Jorge Espat is demitting office.  Word of his resignation circulated around campus late last week and while efforts to verify his departure with the management of the Jesuit institution were fruitless, we have been reliably informed that Espat’s last graduation under his presidency will be this Sunday at the SJC Gymnasium.  Espat succeeded former president Frank Garbutt in 2012, when he stepped down from the post.

    @Blank
    you just sullied your today heretofore good reputation. now you’ll have to change your moniker if you want to be believed on this board ever again. What a lousy and craven thing to say.

    This man proved that he had mucho guts at the peak of his political career when he took a stand.

    @dog in the Manger. PLEASE, you were right, he stood at the peak of his career because he and his brothers had stolen more than enough from us Belizeans! You check their bank accounts and how much PRIME property they own and got when they were in the PUP!!! The Espats have secured their future for life and those of their children and grandchildren!!!! They do not need to work one day in their life! DO NOT let their semblance of humbleness and living simply FOOL you!!! They just were better at stealing and doing so without raising suspicion and did so little by little over all those years in government in the PUP.

    FIND OUT about the prime property the ESPATS owned on same street where BTB is located. PRIME LAND which was CROWN LAND which they got for a pittance and now worth MILLIONS!!! FIND OUT who owned the property BTB recently acquired with an old colonial style wooden house which BTB now uses as offices.
    FIND OUT how much GOB paid the ESPATS for that prime piece of property and how much the ESPATS paid for it (if any at all) and when did they acquire it when they were in government years ago.

    THEY just are a smart, tight knit set of brothers who are MILLIONAIRES through politics but know how to not raise suspicion and we are fools to fall for it!!!

    I will defend Jorge here. He’s older but knew the entire family, even the older ones because they used to come around to study. These people came from poor humble beginnings and educated themselves and were in business long before they got into politics. Do any of you remember where they used to live? If you knew, then you’d know that the house wasn’t anything much. The Habets are millionaires and most of you probably don’t know that they used to live in a small board house at the corner of West Street where Lands Department is now. I won’t vouch and say maybe after they got into politics that they may not have given themselves preferential treatment. We can’t put our heads on the block for our own kids. The truth is, SJC is in shambles. There’s a lot of back-biting and backstabbing. That bodes the same for both the high school and sixth form. The days of Fathers Hadel, Murphy, Boilan, McManus , Stuart Simmons, Homero Escalante, Andrew Lopez, Dolores Balderamos are over and the schools have deteriorated. It’s sad to say, whenever you place power in minorities’ hands (putting it mildly) the can’t stand success. It’s the same here in the US . I remember when our locals were clamoring to lead SJC and it sound like a good idea because I felt we needed to take control of our interest and children’s education. I will forever respect that Espat family, even Mark because I know who they are as human beings and the respect they showed my family. They have always been humble, thinkers and innovators In cs you’re asking, no, I never got from nor asked anything of them . It’s just mutual respect.
