Belize has a new Ambassador to El Salvador and she is San Pedro native Celie Paz, sister of Mayor Elsa Paz. Her appointment came at the last Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, July 28, 2009.
Celie was born in San Pedro to Gildardo “Daddy” Paz and Celi Marin Paz. She was raised in San Pedro as the youngest of four sisters along with four brothers. Like her sisters and all her brothers, Celie is a graduate of San Pedro R.C. School and San Pedro High School. Early in her life Celie moved to San Salvador, capital of El Salvador where she got married to a native of that country.
Ambassador Her Excellency Celie Paz visits the Island often especially at political campaign time as she is an avid campaigner for her sister Mayor Elsa Paz. Celie will continue to reside in San Salvador now in her official diplomatic capacity as Ambassador of Belize to El Salvador. She is one of a few other Sanpedranos who is presently distinguished with an official governmental title as is Mayor Elsa Paz, Honorable Manuel Heredia, and Senator Eiden Salazar. Ambergris Today salutes Ambassador Her Excellency Celie Paz Gonzalez and prepares along with the rest of San Pedro to give her an official welcome and celebration.
