En­tre­pot Sec­ondary gets Gift from LIME

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

LIME has made a do­na­tion to the En­tre­pot Sec­ondary School, fur­ther de­mon­strat­ing its com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing youth de­vel­op­ment and sports.

The com­pany has pro­vided the school with vol­ley­balls and a vol­ley­ball net, and uni­forms for its bas­ket­ball team.

Women’s high-jump cham­pion and LIME brand am­bas­sador, Levern Spencer, is a for­mer stu­dent of En­tre­pot Sec­ondary.

LIME Com­mer­cial Lead, Ch­eryl Fran­cis, says the com­pany is de­lighted to as­sist the school, es­pe­cially in view of the im­por­tant nur­tur­ing role it has played in Levern’s suc­cess as an ath­lete.

She also com­mended the prin­ci­pal and staff for con­tin­u­ing to en­cour­age their stu­dents to de­velop an ap­pre­ci­a­tion for sports as well as aca­demics.

Said Fran­cis: “Sport is dear to the hearts of St. Lu­cians. The ath­letic prow­ess dis­played by lo­cal greats like Levern, Jean­nelle Scheper, Earl Jean and Dar­ren Sammy greatly de­fines who we are as a peo­ple. This is more than a spon­sor­ship; it’s an in­vest­ment in St. Lu­cia’s youth.

We be­lieve it’s im­por­tant to en­cour­age young peo­ple to de­velop a love for sport be­cause it’s great for their health and char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment, and it boosts their self-es­teem. It’s also good for their com­mu­ni­ties and can even be a path to higher ed­u­ca­tion and eco­nomic suc­cess for young sports­men and women who are de­ter­mined to ex­cel.”

Prin­ci­pal of En­tre­pot Sec­ondary, Mr Arthur Scott, ex­pressed his deep ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the con­tri­bu­tion from LIME and said it would go a long way in help­ing the school fur­ther im­prove its sports pro­gramme.

Nu­mer­ous schools have re­ceived sup­port from LIME this year for var­i­ous sports in­tia­tives, in­clud­ing the In­terSe­condary Schools Sports Meet and the Na­tional Pri­mary In­ter-Dis­trict Track and Field Sports Meet.
