The Dominica Award of Honor is to be bestowed on Charles Savarin on Monday.

Created in 1967, it is the highest honor presented by the state under the Meritorious Service Honors Act, Chapter Ninety Nine of the Commonwealth of Dominica.

This award is conferred on persons who have made significant contributions to the country.

That award is traditionally presented during Dominica’s annual independence celebrations.

The ceremony is expected to take place at 12:30 pm at the president’s office at Morne Bruce.

Savarin will be officially elected as Dominica’s Head of State in parliament today (Monday, September 30).

He is expected to be sworn in on Tuesday, October 1.
