Two Sanpedranos Among Belizean Patriots Awardees 2022

Twenty distinguished Belizeans were honored at this year's Tribute to Belizean Patriots ceremony on September 18, 2022, at Battlefield Park in Belize City. Among those honored were Sanpedranos Susana Eiley and the late Alberto Nu�ez Sr. The National Honors and Awards Act, 1991, provides that each year on Independence Day, or at such other times as may be deemed expedient, honors and awards may be conferred on persons, living or deceased, who have rendered outstanding and meritorious service to Belize, or who have distinguished themselves in other endeavors worthy of national recognition.

For over 30 years Susana Eiley has volunteered in social service in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. Over the years she has helped countless families to become established. She is a Justice of the Peace and works closely with the Belize Police Department, volunteers with NEMO in times of disaster, is a blood donor and is the first female manager of the San Pedro Sea Dogs Football team. Mrs. Susan owns and operates El Fogon Restaurant where she prepares authentic fire hearth Belizean cuisine. She always carries the wellbeing of her town at heart; she has demonstrated her commitment to her people, especially to women and children on countless occasions. Whenever there is a call to fundraise for any cause, she not only volunteers to sell tickets, but is the first when it is time to prepare packaged items to ensure that the proceeds go directly to the intended cause. Susana is honored for her selfless work with the Meritorious Service Award for contributions to community service.

Mr. Nunez was born and raised in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye; the late don Beto was pivotal to the development of the island. Like all boys born in the 1930's in San Pedro, don Beto fell in love with the sea and helped in the development of the fishing industry. For years he served as president of the Caribe�a Producers Fishing Cooperative, one of Belize's thriving fishing cooperatives at the time. This life would set the stage for his venture into local politics, when in 1994 he was first elected to the San Pedro Town Council and in 1997 became the first mayor to be directly elected by the people of San Pedro to serve as their Alcalde. His dedicated and tireless efforts helped to the improvement of life on the island where he helped in the transformation of San Pedro from a fishing community to one of Belize's tourism mecca. Don Alberto Nunez is honored with the Meritorious Award Post Posthumously for his services to the people of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.
