Jane Ellen Mary Usher, J.P., CBE is an outstanding Belizean who has contributed to her country in many ways--politically, and, more importantly, as the steward of the Holy Redeemer Credit Union (HRCU).
With her prudent yet efficient leadership, "Ms. Jane" as she is fondly known, has guided this iconic institution to the force that it has become in our society. Many Belizeans have been educated, have built their homes, or have implemented entrepreneurial establishments due to the financial support of HRCU.
Many years ago,"Ms. Jane" was a pioneer President of the British Honduras Credit Union League. Throughout her tenure she has served on the Board of Directors at HRCU and was awarded the Golden Eagle Award for outstanding service to the Credit Union Movement in 2001. The scope of her influence and contribution to the Credit Union Movement goes beyond national borders for she received the Distinguished Service Award from the Jamaica Cooperative Credit Union League in 2012.
In recognition of over 70 years of outstanding service to Belize, Galen University congratulates Jane Ellen Mary Usher, our beloved "Ms. Jane", as a recipient of the Honorary Doctor of Philosophy Degree.
