Winners of Scotiabank Students Run Marathon Bahamas Recognized


Nassau, The Bahamas - Scotiabank – title sponsor of the Students Run Marathon Bahamas –recognized and rewarded the stellar performances of the winning school relay teams who participated in Marathon Bahamas on January 14.

Students from schools who placed in the Straight and Mixed relay categories, and their coaches, were presented with trophies and gifts at ceremonies at the Bank’s Rawson Square Corporate Offices in Nassau and Scotiabank’s Branch in Marsh Harbour.

“Running a marathon is a life altering experience. These exceptional student athletes not only completed the 26.2 mile course but outpaced all the other student runners who participated in this year’s Scotiabank Students Run Marathon Bahamas.  They deserve every commendation,” said Nakera Symonette, Senior Manager, Marketing & Public Relations, Scotiabank Caribbean North.

“These young athletes are a reflection of the bright future The Bahamas has ahead. A future led by persons who already know the value of hard work and endurance,” Symonette continued. “People who know that you have to train for success and that preparation pays off. These are the positive traits in our youth that we have gathered to highlight and celebrate.”
