Mayor Bernard Wagner Awarded by Mayor of Louisville, Kentucky

City Council is working along with Ambassador Shabazz with the tour across the city. At today’s event, Mayor Wagner also received a prestigious award from one of the chaperones on behalf of Mayor Greg Fischer of Louisville, Kentucky. He was presented with a hat and a plaque. That aside, Wagner says that the invaluable social impact for the youths is important so the council threw its support behind the initiative without hesitation.

“Greg Fischer is the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky. We spoke on the phone and he is really excited about the opportunities these kids would have in the city and the fact that we welcomed them in Belize City and we never did for a moment think about it and said we wanted to be a part of this process. And that is the reason why I believe this event went off so beautiful. The benefits are…you can never put a figure on the benefit of activities like these because you are looking at kids, and about building relationships. Not everything has a dollar value, but sometimes the social impact is important and you must never lose sight of that.”

“Certainly we hope to continue to build this relationship. It is a newfound relationship and I am certain that we will continue to meet with these people, and have this exchange where Belize City kids could venture and visit Louisville Kentucky and Detroit Michigan and other parts of the Americas.”
