This national recognition comes as Mr. Watson celebrates 50 years of service at Half Moon where he began as a waiter in the resort's fabled Seagrape Terrace restaurant. Today, a sprightly young man of 73, Mr. Watson is Half Moon's Estate Manager, responsible for the 400 acre grounds for which the resort has received numerous accolades.
...
You see, back home in the country, I was never used to those sorts of luxury so to speak," Mr. Watson remembers.
But his lack of exposure to life's luxuries didn't slow him down. At Half Moon, Mr. Watson demonstrated passion and diligence for his job and was quickly promoted to dining room captain. After a short period in that position Mr. Watson rose to the ranks of assistant maitre'd and was subsequently promoted to restaurant & bar manager in 1988. He served in that position for seven years until his promotion to his current position of Estate Manager in 1995.
This past June Mr. Watson marked a milestone 50 years at Half Moon. His has been a fabled journey attending to royalty, celebrities and luminaries including Princess Margaret of Great Britain, several Heads of Government, world famous athletes and celebrities. One of Mr. Watson's most memorable moments at Half Moon was 1962 when Jamaica gained independence.
...
When asked how tourism has changed over the years, Mr. Watson responded, "Tremendously!
...
Mr. Watson persevered through the lean times of Jamaica's tourism, working with tireless diligence. His exemplary work ethic was recognized in 2005 when he received the Hotel Worker of the Year award from the Jamaica Hotel & Tourist Association at their 44th annual general meeting.
He recalls receiving that award as being one of the proudest moments of his life -- to be singled out from among the thousands of workers in Jamaica's hospitality industry. But understandably, to receive one of the most coveted titles Jamaica can bestow upon its citizens is a singularly proud occasion. "I'm truly blessed! I'm really overjoyed that nationally I will be recognized for all the long service, hard work, perseverance, determination and dedication that kept me doing what I do best throughout the years," Mr. Watson said.
When the notification of Mr. Watson's award was published on Jamaica's Independence Day (August 6) all of Half Moon celebrated that their very own would receive national honours. Managing Director of Half Moon Richard Whitfield, who has worked with Mr. Watson for more than 30 years beamed with pride.
"The award of the Badge of Honour for Meritorious Service to Wordsworth Watson is recognition of a lifetime of dedicated service to what was a fledgling tourism industry when he entered it, and also of Mr. Watson as a representative of all his colleagues. It has been a pleasure to watch Mr. Watson's career evolve over the years.
...
"Mr. Watson is a perfect role model and inspiration for young people starting out in the hospitality industry. In him you see that it is possible to break down the barriers, realize your full potential and rise to the top," said Shernette Crichton, Half Moon's Hotel Manager who has worked with Mr. Watson for over 17 years.
...
Mr. Watson, who is a widower, shares this joy with his two daughters and three grandchildren.
When asked about his philosophy in life Mr. Watson smiled, "Be honest in everything you do.
