UK Barbados Nation - - FRONT PAGE -

A DIS­TIN­GUISHED EARLY CHILD­HOOD ed­u­ca­tor, a re­tired busi­ness ex­ec­u­tive and a for­mer chair­man of the Elec­toral and Bound­aries Com­mis­sion have all been con­ferred with this is­land’s top hon­ours.

Re­tired ed­u­ca­tor Avisene Car­ring­ton has been made a Dame of St An­drew – the first centenarian to be con­ferred the is­land’s high­est award since the Na­tional Hon­ours be­gan in 1980 – in the In­de­pen­dence Hon­ours List.

The new dame was in the spot­light when she cel­e­brated her 100th birth­day in Septem­ber.

Kenneth He­witt, a for­mer lead­ing char­tered ac­coun­tant, who acted as Gover­nor Gen­eral from Au­gust 28 to Septem­ber 16, has been knighted for his con­tri­bu­tion to the de­vel­op­ment of the in­ter­na­tional busi­ness sec­tor.

At­tor­ney at law Philip Ser­rao has been recog­nised for his con­tri­bu­tion to mod­ernising the Bar­ba­dos elec­toral sys­tem and its ad­min­is­tra­tive process.

For­mer Bar­ba­dos Labour Party Cab­i­net mem­ber Delisle Brad­shaw; phi­lan­thropist Chester­field Brew­ster, co-founder of the Maria Holder Trust; and re­tired ca­reer diplo­mat Dr Peter Lau­rie have been be­stowed with the Com­pan­ion Of Hon­our, the sec­ond high­est award.

In this cat­e­gory, two hon­orary awards have been granted – to Su­san Mag­nier, chair­man of the Bar­ba­dos Chil­dren’s Trust, and Der­rick Smith, co-founder, grand pa­tron and trus­tee of the Sandy Lane

Char­ity Trust in 2004.

Con­tri­bu­tions

They have both been recog­nised for their out­stand­ing phil­an­thropic con­tri­bu­tions to this coun­try – Mag­nier’s in child wel­fare and Smith for spe­cial needs ed­u­ca­tion.

Four have re­ceived the Gold Crown Of Merit. They are re­tired civil avi­a­tion ex­ec­u­tive Mitchin­son Beck­les; out­stand­ing New York-based jour­nal­ist Richard “Tony” Best; med­i­cal prac­ti­tioner Haresh Thani and ac­coun­tant Charles Tib­bits.

For­mer pres­i­dent of the Se­nate, Ker­ryann Ifill, an ad­vo­cate for the rights of peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, has been given a Sil­ver Crown Of Merit for her con­tri­bu­tion to civil so­ci­ety.

Three other re­cip­i­ents were: busi­ness­woman Ardyce Bolden, for her com­mit­ment to indige­nous en­ter­prise in train­ing and cos­me­tol­ogy; Wil­liam Hinds, for in­no­va­tion in al­ter­na­tive en­ergy; and Robert Peirce, for his hu­man­i­tar­ian work, es­pe­cially with un­der­priv­i­leged youth, and also his con­tri­bu­tion

to the horse racing in­dus­try.

Five peo­ple were granted the Bar­ba­dos Ser­vice Star for mer­i­to­ri­ous work and a sim­i­lar num­ber the Bar­ba­dos Ser­vice Medal.

The lone re­cip­i­ent of the Bar­ba­dos Brav­ery Medal was Bradley Lever Broomes, who saved the lives of a hus­band and wife who ex­pe­ri­enced dif­fi­culty while swim­ming at the beach by Cob­blers Cove Ho­tel in St Peter.
