“To uplift and bring hope to disadvantaged children through education.”
Margaret "Peggy" Steuart, OD

Mrs. Steuart is one of 50 members of the Steuart Family, now in its fourth generation of Steuart involvement. An inspiration to those she meets, Mrs. Steuart has instilled in her children and grandchildren some very important principles which include respecting and contributing to the welfare of Montego Bay and the wider Jamaica. These guiding principles are the foundation of Half Moon, a resort with more than 800 employees who have contributed to its reputation as a landmark of world-class hospitality, one that lends itself to an inviting and memorable Jamaican experience.

A woman with over 50 years of associations with educational and charitable institutions, including being a Board member of the American Friends of Jamaica, Mrs. Steuart believes in continuously doing her part to make a difference. She enjoys her long-standing relationship with Jamaica, and remains steadfast in her belief in, and dedication to the nation’s welfare and development. In October 2017, Mrs. Steuart was formally recognized at the ceremony of Investiture and Presentation of National Honours and Awards. She was awarded the Order of Distinction [OD] in the rank of Officer for her significant contribution to nation building.
