BTB Recognizes Two Frontline Heroes for their Service to Belize’s Tourism Industry

The Belize Tourism Board has recognized two tourism stakeholders as part of its Frontline Hero Award Program. Derick Hendy was awarded as a frontline hero by the Minister of Tourism last week and was noted for his involvement in community and education outreach. Hendy is a park ranger attached to the Belize Audubon Society and is stationed at the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary. He is also the founder of the first Junior Bird Club aimed at education young persons on the importance of birds to the environment. Also recognized was 30-year old, Vianny Godoy, who currently works as a ticket clerk at the Xunantunich Archaeological Reserve in San Jose Succotz Village, Cayo District. She has been described by her superiors as reliable, consistent, professional and humble. Both Hendy and Godoy received one thousand five hundred dollars along with a 2-night stay package at Falling Leaves Lodge and El Ben Cabanas, respectively. The BTB’s Frontline Hero Award program was established in 2021 to recognize outstanding Belizeans who have served Belize beyond their call of duty.
