Telecommunications provider, Flow, teamed up with the Babonneau Youth and Sports Council to host a grand motorcade and homecoming ceremony for St. 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 well-wishers, 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 also took part in the motorcade which kicked off at 1:00 p.m. from the Cacoa playing field and proceeded along the streets 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 St. 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 St. 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 million dollars to sports, education and youth development, particularly at the grassroots level and in schools and community-based clubs and organizations.
