KINGSTON, Jamaica – Former Cabinet Minister Dr Ken Baugh is among five Jamaicans who have been appointed members of the Order of Jamaica, the island’s fourth highest national honour.
The others are Dr Wayne Boxer, who will be honoured for services to the National Gallery of Jamaica and the development of the arts; Professor Denise Eldemire-Shearer for her contribution to health and welfare and her work with senior citizens; Professor Renn Holness for his work in the field of medicine; and Ambassador Anthony Johnson for “distinguished national service in the public and private sector and for his contribution to the Jamaica foreign service”, the notice by the Chancery of the Orders of the Societies of Honour in today’s Observer stated.
Among those appointed as members of the Order of Distinction (Commander Class) is chief executive officer of Sandals Resorts International and the Jamaica Observer Adam Stewart, for outstanding service to tourism and the hotel sector.
Also, senior Jamaica Observer photojournalist Michael Gordon has been rewarded with the Order of Distinction (Officer Class) for his outstanding work in the field of photojournalism in a career that spanned over 45 years.
