Flow Sup­ports Home­com­ing Cel­e­bra­tion for Lev­ern

The Star (St. Lucia) - - COMMENT -

Saint Lu­cia’s lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions provider, Flow teamed up with the Babon­neau Youth and Sports Coun­cil in host­ing a grand mo­tor­cade and home­com­ing cer­e­mony for Saint Lu­cia’s in­ter­na­tional high-jump star and Flow Am­bas­sador, Lev­ern Spencer last Sun­day in Babon­neau.

There was a huge turnout as hun­dreds of fans and well­wish­ers, along with fam­ily and friends of Lev­ern from the com­mu­nity and be­yond, joined in the cel­e­bra­tion, many of them proudly wear­ing their Flow-branded T-shirts. They all took part in the mo­tor­cade which kicked off at 1:00 p.m. from the Ca­coa play­ing field and pro­ceeded along the streets all through­out Babon­neau. The event was a spec­tac­u­lar out­pour­ing of com­mu­nity pride and ju­bi­la­tion as young and old ex­pressed their love, ap­pre­ci­a­tion and sup­port for Lev­ern.

Around 4:00 p.m. all the pa­trons gath­ered in the church yard of the Good Shep­herd Catholic Church in Cen­tral Babon­neau for an au­to­graph sign­ing ses­sion and a photo op with their home­town hero­ine and Saint Lu­cia’s Olympic icon. This was fol­lowed by an awards cer­e­mony and a reception in hon­our of Lev­ern at the Babon­neau Multi-purpose Cen­tre. Youth Syn­ergy from the Babon­neau con­stituency pre­sented Lev­ern with a plaque of ap­pre­ci­a­tion,

“Like the Babon­neau com­mu­nity and the rest of Saint Lu­cia, Flow is ex­tremely proud of Lev­ern for her ex­tra­or­di­nary achieve­ments and the out­stand­ing and dig­ni­fied way she has rep­re­sented her beloved coun­try,” said Flow St. Lu­cia Mar­ket­ing & Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Ex­ec­u­tive, Sher­ma­lyn Si­donie-John. “Lev­ern has proven be­yond doubt that she is an ex­cep­tional ath­lete and Flow feels hon­oured to have her as our Brand Am­bas­sador, and to have played a part in her steady rise to great­ness,” Si­donie-John added.

Flow has been Lev­ern’s spon­sor for many years, pro­vid­ing her with fi­nan­cial and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions sup­port to as­sist with her ath­letic de­vel­op­ment and ed­u­ca­tion.

So far this year Flow has con­trib­uted well over a quar­ter of a mil­lion dol­lars to sports, ed­u­ca­tion and youth de­vel­op­ment, par­tic­u­larly at the grass roots level and in schools and com­mu­nity-based clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions.
