People’s United Party Ensures Legacy of George Cadle Price Lives On Through Education Initiatives

While it has been 12 years since the passing of George Cadle Price, the People’s United Party has worked towards ensuring that his life, legacy and accomplishments are passed on from generation to generation.  PUP’s Chairman, Henry Usher, explained that the government is focused on the education aspect.

Henry Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform and Religious Affairs: “What we discussed in Cabinet is that September 19th is already National Service Day we want to make January 15 a national education day almost, that persons can learn about the life of George Price but also educate themselves and I think that’s the most important part of Monday and also the exhibit Let Belize Live is also moving to Orange Walk. Last year if you recall it was in Belmopan, the year before it was in Belize City and we are taking that exhibit to Orange Walk so that students, adults, residents of Orange Walk can visit the House of Culture and see the books and also see the actual original type writter that George Price used to write his speeches on. I think that’s important and what is critical is that we learn to live in the legacy of George Price and that’s a legacy of service, a legacy of humility, a legacy of national development and for developing an independent Belize.”

Usher noted that it would be an injustice, to the country and future generations, if the life of George Price is not passed on whenever possible.

Henry Charles Usher, Minister of Public Service, Constitutional and Political Reform and Religious Affairs: “That’s why it’s important to always tell his story. That’s why it’s important that we honor his day, his birthday on Monday. It’s important that we continue to do the work on National Service Day, you know little acts of service to our country every single individual, every single Belizean young and old do an act of service. So I think that sure if we don’t tell the story, if we don’t explain to the young people, if we don’t educate them on who George Price was, what his lessons are they will forget. But I believe we’re doing a good job of making sure that we continue to impart those lessons to the young people and I’m always happy to hear young people asking questions. “Who was George Price?”, “What did he stand for ?”, “What did he mean when he said this.” you know and we always are willing to answer those questions as a family from the Price Family I can speak and certainly as a party because he was such a transcendental individual meaning that generation to generation the education, the speeches that he gave they’re still relevant today. You look at the speeches from the 60s you can still take educational material out of those speeches relevant to 2024 and that’s what makes him such a generational individual for Belize.”

The Right Honourable George Cadle Price passed away on September 19, 2011.
