Thursday, June 16, 2005 - Eight Saint Lucians will later this year be honoured having been named recipients of awards in the 2005 Queen’s Birthday Honours list. The announcement was made Saturday June 11th 2005 at a reception held at the Governor General’s residence at Morne Fortune.

The awards are made to persons who have given exemplary service to Saint Lucia in a number of areas. Dr. Peter Archer Wilwyn St. Rose will receive the ‘Companion of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George C.M.G.’ for services to the medical profession.

The Ordinary Officers of the Civil Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire O.B.E.’will be conferred on Hon. Cecil Henry Lay for Parliamentary Services and Mrs. Joyce Louisa Destang for services to the Tourism Industry.

The ‘Ordinary Members of the Civil Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire M.B.E.’will be given to Miss Nadine Andre Juliette George for her contribution to the development of Sports, Mr. Auguste Gaspard for his service to the community and Mr. Joseph Michael Matthew Lafeuille for public service .

The ‘British Empire Medal B.E.M. (Civil Division)’ will be awarded to Mrs. Juliana Nelson Alcide for her contribution in education and Mr. Samson Nicholas Lambert will receive his award for services in sports.
Speaking at Saturday’s reception Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony said while questions have been raised about keeping Her Majesty’s Honours in Saint Lucia and elsewhere, it will always hold a special significance for the many persons who have and continue to receive them.

“The award of these honours is not really the end of life of these individuals that in a sense, these honours call them to higher duty and to higher responsibility. As they reflect and think about their honours, they also need to think of those who have supported them through the years, their friends and family and their colleagues,” Dr. Anthony said.

The eight Saint Lucians named will receive their awards at an official investiture ceremony to be held sometime in November.
