MoyAnn Simpson, Intercol general-secretary, read the president’s message in which the student-athletes were commended for their performances and highlighted the various activities offered by FISU for both student-athletes and non-competing student-athletes. ‘While we saw an increase in the levels of sponsorship we needed to improve our presence in the media as the performances of our student-athletes ranked among the best in the world. We would also continue our efforts to promote Intercol as the vehicle to facilitate the transition of high school athletes to national representation’, Mrs. Simpson said.

Guest speaker Anthony Hall, CEO Jamaica Producers Group, challenged the student-athletes to continue to aim for success as they ‘set precise goals that are achievable; acquire related knowledge to put your goal in the high definition area to define that goal and be optimistic as success begins today as you make the effort’, he pointed out.
