On September 8, the Ministry of the Public Service celebrated the dedication and outstanding contributions of public officers by inducting 26 more individuals into the Walk of Recognition & Inspiration situated in Belmopan.

Established through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 2020, this initiative was brought to life by the collaborative efforts of the Minister of Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform, Hon. Henry Charles Usher, and the Belmopan City Council under the leadership of Madame Mayor Sheran Palacio.

Public officers, often the unrecognized heroes/heroines of governance, have been instrumental in shaping the country’s growth and progression. They oversee a range of tasks and projects that, while significant, often go unnoticed by the larger populace.

Recognizing the impact of these officials, the ministry chose to honor those who have either served diligently for over 35 years or have been recognized for their exceptional contribution to the government and the Belizean people.

Speaking about the significance of this monument, the Minister of the Public Service emphasized the crucial roles these honorees have played throughout their careers. “These individuals have all played a part in building Belize during their 30-plus years of service to the nation. The walk of recognition gives honor to the names of these dedicated women and men in public service,” he said.

Situated between the Angelus Press and Belize Bank, the monument isn’t just a piece of architecture but also incorporates technology, featuring a QR code that, when scanned, grants access to an Inspiration eLibrary.

The inscription on the monument encapsulates its essence perfectly: “May this Awards and Walkway Program be an inspiration for other talented and dedicated individuals to join our noble work of service to others.”

Fittingly, the Belize Public Service Walk of Recognition Induction ceremony has now found a permanent spot in the calendar of events in the September celebrations—a significant month for Belize that marks our Independence.
