Today was a very special day for Coleridge & Parry’s Sada Williams.
Williams was the toast of the Ashton Hall, St Peter school as she was honoured for her performances at this year’s CARIFTA Games held in Martinique where she won the gold medal in the Under-18 400 metres and then added silver to that in the 200 metres.
Williams arrived at the school in limousine with students lining the driveway and cheering her lustily. The accolades were continued at morning assembly where principal Vincent Fergusson and coach Ramon Armstrong congratulated her on her achievement and also for bringing honour to the school. The packed school hall screamed and clapped in approval at the sentiments expressed by both.
The shy Williams, who won the gold in a personal best time of 53.39 seconds, thanked the principal, coach, staff and students for their gesture.
