The reigning queens of school track and field are in step with Scotiabank once again for this year’s edition of the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Athletics Championship (BSSAC).
For the second year in a row, Scotiabank will provide equipment and monetary support for the Springer Memorial School’s dominant athletics team which is expected to continue being a force to be reckoned with at BSSAC.
Scotiabank marketing manager Amanda Lynch-Foster said the bank was thrilled to renew their sponsorship of Springer’s team, who finished over 100 points ahead of their nearest competitors at last year’s championship.
“We can’t think about athletics in Barbados without looking at the outstanding contributions of Springer Memorial’s students –– most recently their alumna, Akela Jones, who has qualified for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.”
Lynch-Foster added that although they were known for their involvement with cricket, the bank continues to seek opportunities to lend assistance to a wide range of sporting and educational activities that tie in with its ongoing focus on youth under its global philanthropic programme.
