The Rev Lurline Larmond Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to college-bound high school seniors based on demonstrated academic achievement, financial need, and an express interest in pursuing an education.
During this time Rev. Larmond was Ordained and in 1976, she became the Pastor of Porus United Brethren Church. She was a pioneer in that she was the first female Pastor in the Jamaica Conference. She totally impacted the community and raised up spiritual sons and daughters to become future Pastors, teachers, and leaders in the community.
Ms. Cousins (as she was known at the time) became the Nursey School teacher in Hanbury and absolutely loved teaching the little ones. It was during this time that she accepted the courtship and marriage proposal of a handsome young gentleman Oswald Larmond who was from the same district. They married February 22, 1958 and recently celebrated their 60thwedding anniversary. The union of Oswald and Lurline produced 7 children. She absolutely loved being a mother and made it her life’s mission to raise her children in the way of the Lord and to get them the best education possible.
