NASPA Long Point Nevis (April 6th, 2021) – The Nevis Air & Sea Ports Authority (NASPA), on Wednesday March 31st recognized eight of their staff for their contribution to the authority in a special retirement ceremony, hosted at the Long Point Port.
The ceremony highlighted the exceptional work done by retirees, Norene Roland, Leon Barry, Ken Pemberton, Elvin Williams, Anthony Browne, Rupert Warner, Leroy Kelly, and Steven Sutton.
Present at the ceremony and delivering remarks was General Manager at the NASPA, Oral Brandy.
“We want to show appreciation for all the work that our retirees have done. They would have contributed a lot to NASPA and the impact that they had would have extended from NASPA to Nevis, as well as the clients and customers that use our facilities. The truth is, we wish that you could stay with us much longer, but there comes a time when one simply has to move on. And we want to thank you for the many years that you have served at the port.
“You may have retired but this is just the end of a chapter in your life. And now the next chapter is retirement. A chapter that we are all looking forward to. Enjoy your retirement, relax, have fun, enjoy life,” he said.
He also used the opportunity to single out and commend Rupert ‘Quarter’ Warner, who has been employed at NASPA since its inception.
“Mr. Warner has always done very outstanding work. He has worked with us beyond his retirement age and has always worked just as diligently and hard as any young person, and we wish he could have stayed with us longer,” he said.
Chairman of the NASPA Board, Joseph Liburd was also present at the ceremony and used the opportunity to thank the retirees for their contribution to the NASPA.
“You all have done well, you all have worked hard, you all have helped to make NASPA what it has been and what it is. You have done well,” he said.
The ceremony included a presentation of certificates, where Administrative Assistant, Michelle Lawrence, presented the retirees with an appreciation plaque. As part of the ceremony, participants also received a token of appreciation for their hard work and contribution to the NASPA.
