Fri 17 Apr 2015 — NICH's Employee of the Year 2014, Debra Wilkes

NICH's Employee of the Year 2014, Debra Wilkes!

Corozaleña Debra Wilkes was recently recognized by the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH) as 'Employee of the Year' for 2014. In 2012 Ms. Wilkes was appointed as Coordinator of the newly inaugurated Corozal House of Culture becoming the 6th House of Culture in the country under the Museum of Belize and NICH. Debra‘s hard work and commitment in developing cultural events and activities which define northern Belize justifies her recognition.

A photographer by trade, Debra first visited Belize in 1992. After several journeys between Canada and Belize, she settled in Corozal Town in 2005. In 2009 Ms. Wilkes, launched the monthly event 'Art in the Park’ at Corozal Town Central Park, coaxing the artistic community to display and sell their creations. Well into its sixth year, Art in the Park has become a national success, nowhere else in Belize is there a monthly event that celebrates art, music, food and community.

As coordinator of the Corozal House of Culture, Debra strives to showcase the rich culture of Corozal with importance given to the revival of lost traditions and celebrations. Equally important, she continues the objective of oral historical retrieval.

Debra is dedicated to the promotion and development of her fellow artists, artisans and residents of the Corozal community on a local and national level, and continues to contribute to the transformation of Corozal Town into a vibrant municipality.

This is a well deserved recognition. Congratulations, Debra!
