PRESS RELEASE – Levern Spencer continues her philanthropic campaign, this time to the Aux Lyon Combined School. With the assistance of her local Manager, Mr. Gregory Dickson, a presentation of sports clothing and sneakers were made to the student body.
Via Skype, Levern who is preparing for Olympics 2016, joined the assembly of students along with officials from the Ministry of Youth Development & Sports, headed by Hon. Shawn Edward who is also the parliamentary representative for the constituency in which the school falls.
In her remarks, Levern spoke to the students about the importance of education and sports. She appealed to the students to always marry the two as they have complimented each other in her pursuit in life.
The Minister supported Levern’s appeal to the students, and also to the teachers to encourage students to practice balanced lifestyles. Once a student athlete, the Hon. Shawn Edward also shared his experiences of academic excellence through his discipline gained through sports.
This is Ms. Spencer’s second donation of sports gear to a school, the first being to Babonneau Primary School, located in the community from which she hails.
