Double honour for ‘Maco’

Social Share

One of Parkinson Memorial School’s most illustrious sons, the late legendary West Indies fast bowler Malcolm Denzil Marshall, was honoured yesterday with the opening of a park and the unveiling of a bust at his alma mater in The Pine, St Michael.
Marshall’s mother Jean Inniss, his widow Connie Marshall and sister Catherine Mitchell were present at the ceremony and heard glowing tributes from principal Jeff Broomes and Barbados Cricket Association president Joel Garner.
Broomes, who managed Marshall as a Barbados junior and senior player, asked his students to play their part in making the park a place worthy to symbolize the excellence of “Maco”, as the speedster was affectionately and fearfully called.
Marshall, who passed away in November 1999, attended Parkinson Comprehensive, now Parkinson Memorial, from 1969 to 1973. (KB)
