By Benjamin Flowers, Staff Reporter

The family and friends of Maud Williams gathered at the Old Belize Jungle Pavilion to honor her at the annual senior citizens recogition gala, hosted by HelpAge Belize.

The event featured testimonials from those who have known Williams throughout her extensive career in education and in Anglicanism, including remarks from the Minister of Education and Deputy Prime Minister, Patrick Faber.

Minister of immigration, Beverly Williams, daughter of Maud Williams, shared her experience of growing up with the disciplinarian that is Maud Williams, and how it shaped her to become the woman she is. 

Bishop of the Anglican Diocese in Belize, Phillip Wright, focused on the contributions Williams made to both the Anglican schools and the church.

“I’m speaking not only for myself, but for the four or five bishops under which she worked, Ms. Maud has always been a very special adviser to the bishops,” Wright said.”She made a tremendous difference in our schools; she brought them from here they were,to a whole new level.”

Maud Williams, J.P. MBE, has dedicated almost 55 years to education in Belize, serving as a school teacher, principal, and eventually as the General Manager of Anglican schools countrywide.
