Forty-one fave Bajan personalities Pt. 5

Here are my five remaining fave Bajan personalities:

Tessa Chadderton-Shaw - As the Manager of the National Council on Substance Abuse, Tessa Chadderton-Shaw (pictured with daughters Miah and Haylee) leads the fight against substance abuse in Barbados. Her passion for her cause is one addiction we should all have.

Timothy Callender - One of the most creative and prolific storytellers and playwrights that Barbados has produced, Timothy Callender's tales are so colourful that they transport the reader to a Barbados past.

Wendell McClean - Heroes come in all kinds of shapes and sizes; sometimes they're just people who do the right thing. The late academic launched a now legendary battle with the Public Utilities Board against the telephone company Bartel's attempts to raise telephone rates. Thank you, Wendell McClean.

Wendell Smith - The late actor performed in many plays, but I will always remember him as Cranston Browne Esquire Proprietaire of the Laff-it-Off productions. Another talented actor who's sorely missed.

Wesley Worrell - Paralympian Wesley Worrell may be wheelchair-bound, but he doesn't let his disability prevent him from participating in the Fun Ride and other sporting events. I understand that he's recovering from a recent illness, and I wish him well.
