Quiz No. 8 (Famous People of Cayman Islands)

Read the following Paragraphs and answer the following Questions Teamwise

ďHis life stands as a sterling exampleĒ is the tribute paid to Mr. Desmond Vere Watler, CBE (1914 to 1994) Ė an exemplary citizen and exceptional civil servant.
Starting out as a 23-year-old clerk, his almost four- decade career saw him rise through the ranks to become, in 1969, Caymanís first Treasurer, a title that was constitutionally changed to Financial Secretary. Equally active in the wider community, Mr. Desmond became a Chartered Rotarian of Grand Cayman in 1965 and was a lifetime church elder of the Gun Bay United Church, conducting services throughout all districts.
He was honoured twice by Queen Elizabeth II, first in 1966 as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire and again in 1975 when he became a Commander of that Order. Highly regarded for his soft-spoken demeanour, he became even better-known as a role model regarding standards of civil service integrity.

Our second national hero is Mrs. Sybil Ione McLaughlin, MBE, JP, who continues to be an active member of society and a living example of the noble qualities towards which Caymanians, especially our young women, can aspire.
Mrs. McLaughlin received the countryís highest honour in 1996, in recognition of her contribution to Caymanís parliamentary development, as well as to community life.

ďA very special son of CaymanĒ, Mr. Ormond L. Panton, OBE (1920 to 1992) was one of the most prominent political figures in Caymanís history.
Mr. Ormond founded Caymanís first political party and was the first politician to win an election as party leader. As a member of the National Democratic Party, he was heavily involved in politics and was the youngest delegate to attend the West Indies Federation discussions. His professional skills combined with a relish for helping others assured his success in many local trials.

A man with vision and drive, William Warren Conolly, OBE, JP was a major player in Caymanís political, economic and social landscape. He grew up a devoted scholar qualifying for entrance to college overseas. However a lack of funds thwarted his dream of obtaining a higher education.
Instead, following in his fatherís footsteps, he entered government service in 1944 as an elected member from East End, starting an illustrious public service career spanning three decades. World War II put a temporary stop to this new vocation as Mr. Conolly sailed with the American Merchant Marine for three years. Upon his return in 1948, he re-established the family general merchandise store. However, the call to public service remained strong and in 1952, he re-entered politics as one of the elected members for the Legislative Assembly of Justices and Vestrymen.
In 1958 he founded the Cayman Vanguard Party, which dissolved not long after. A year later, under the new 1959 Constitution, he was appointed by Jamaican Governor Sir Kenneth Blackburne as one of the nominated members of the Legislative Assembly.
