Driven by our commitment to make a meaningful impact in the communities where we operate and our LNG community, our New Fortress Energy Foundation engaged our neighbors in Old Harbour Bay, Clarendon, and Montego Bay to vote for people they consider to be their community heroes. The criteria was simple – people who selflessly give of themselves to make someone else’s life better.
One of the six Community Heroes we honored is Adrian Townsend, a 34-year old welder from Old Harbour Bay. He’s using his personal funds to build a facility to house the free welding training program he runs for youths in his community. “I’m passionate about helping young people gain a valuable skill,” he told us at the award presentation. “Even though I was not doing this to be recognized, it is very encouraging to know that my fellow community members value what I’m doing.”
