Prime Minister Dr. the Hon. Timothy Harris along with family, friends and well-wishers, paid their final respects to the life and contributions of the late George “Washie” Washington Archibald, on Friday, June 30th.

Mr. Archibald passed away on June 20th at the age of 83 years. He was accorded an official funeral service by the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis, at the Zion Moravian Church in Basseterre.

Prime Minister Harris while paying tribute to the last educator, told the congregation at the Zion Moravian Church that he is one that should be celebrated and emulated by all.

Mr. Archibald gave service to his country as an educator, social and political commentator, author, historian, and an editor and regular contributor to several newspapers in the Federation.

In 2015, he was one of seven outstanding nationals of St. Kitts and Nevis who was bestowed with the Independence Awards, for his contribution to the development of the Federation and was conferred with the Companion Star of Merit (CSM) award, for his contribution to Education.

The Basseterre Junior High School was upgraded to a high school under the name of “Washington Archibald High School” in 1998, in honour of Mr. Archibald.
