By Horace Palacio: The Battlefield Park in Belize City was a scene of national pride and reverence on the evening of September 13, as twenty-five eminent individuals were recognized for their outstanding contributions to the nation during the annual Tribute to Belizean Patriots ceremony.
The honors bestowed were categorized into the Order of Belize, Order of Distinction, Meritorious Service Award – Female, and Meritorious Service Award – Male.
Order of Belize:
Order of Distinction:
Meritorious Service Award – Female saw a diverse group of women from various fields:
Meritorious Service Award – Male:
The National Honours and Awards Act of 1991 mandates such accolades, either on Independence Day or other significant times. It’s a means of paying tribute to those – living or deceased – who’ve provided invaluable service to Belize or have showcased exemplary efforts deserving of national acknowledgment.
As the evening came to a close, the underlying message was clear: Belize continues to thrive and shine because of its dedicated citizens, and it’s only fitting that they’re honored in such a grand manner.
