Former Prime Minister Perry Christie was bestowed with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award by the Fox Foundation.

The ceremony, held at a gala event attended by prominent figures and dignitaries, highlighted Mr. Christie's profound impact on the political, cultural, and social landscape of The Bahamas.

According to a statement released by the Fox Foundation, Mr. Christie's illustrious career was marked by a series of remarkable milestones, beginning with his appointment as one of the youngest Bahamians ever to serve in the Senate in 1974.

His subsequent election to the House of Assembly in 1977 heralded the beginning of a dynamic and influential journey in Bahamian politics.

“His tenure as Minister of Health and National Insurance, as well as Minister of Tourism, Mr. Christie demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the progress and prosperity of The Bahamas.

His leadership, characterized by a focus on infrastructure development and fostering a sense of patriotism and optimism among Bahamians, laid the foundation for lasting change and growth in the nation,” said the foundation.

As the third Prime Minister of The Bahamas, serving from 2002 to 2007 and then again from 2012 to 2017, Mr. Christie's leadership was instrumental in achieving significant victories for the Progressive Liberal Party and implementing policies that continue to benefit the nation today.

Beyond his political career, Mr. Christie's influence extended to the cultural sphere, where he played a pivotal role in the Valley Boys and the Pioneers Sporting Club, contributing to the rich tapestry of Bahamian culture.

His dedication to the arts, sports, and community service has left an indelible mark on the fabric of society.

In a heartfelt tribute, the Fox Foundation lauded Mr. Christie's legacy of transformative leadership, dedication, and profound love for The Bahamas.

According to the foundation, the Lifetime Achievement Award serves as a testament to his vision, perseverance, and steadfast commitment to the greater good.

Since its inception, the Fox Foundation has been dedicated to supporting education, youth development, community building, and disaster relief in The Bahamas, and has made significant contributions totaling $5 million through private donations.
