Among those honored was The Honorable Hugh Marshall Senior, recognized for his unwavering dedication to national and political development within Antigua and Barbuda.

The event, attended by Prime Minister and ABLP Leader, Gaston Browne, along with cabinet members, highlighted Marshall’s pivotal role in shaping the country’s trajectory.


Marshall, known for his service in Parliament from 1976 to 1991, was lauded for his instrumental efforts in rescuing Antigua from what was described as “hazardous, stupendous, and horrendous leadership and governance” during the 1971 period.

Addressing the gathering, Marshall expressed profound gratitude for the recognition, saying, “I am thankful to the almighty God for bringing me out of poverty and living to see affluence in my country.”

He emphasized the transformative impact of key initiatives such as housing projects and the University of the West Indies on lifting communities out of poverty.

He commended the collective efforts of the Antigua Trades and Labor Union and the ABLP in building and shaping the nation, affirming, “Every single project in this country has got the fingerprint of the Antigua Trades and Labor Union and the Antigua Labor Party.”

His legacy as a storyteller and a advocate for national development was honored with a resounding applause, marking a poignant moment in the nation’s history.
