SKNOC expresses condolences

Mr. Kevin Pope
President,
St. Kitts and Nevis Table ‎Tennis Assn., 

Dear President Kevin:

You have accurately captured the persona of the late former president of the Table Tennis Association. In the name of the Olympic and Commonwealth Games Family, I offer the SKNTTA our sincerest condolences on the passing of former President Laverne Merrit. 

It is almost as if President Laverne was saying, " I am satisfied thus far. Table Tennis will be represented at the 2014 Commonwealth Games." It does not escape the notice of the SKNOC/CGA‎ that the accomplishments and significance of the modern Table Tennis Association can indeed be attributed to her unmistakable ambition and daring, her capacity for charm, her insatiable appetite for the recognition of women in the corridors of power, her willingness to be different, her belief in the Youth and the hope that sport held out for vulnerable youth. 

 

Former President Laverne often demonstrated what the zeal, enthusiasm and focus of one inspired individual can do. With her, it was a case of the impossible is often possible. That in a sense may very well be the message of her stewardship in the vineyard of sports-- and more particularly, Table Tennis.

 

The news of President Laverne's passing leaves a definite damper on the mood, appearing as it did, on the eve of St. Kitts and Nevis' hosting of the esteemed Queen Baton Relay (QBR). Nonetheless, we shall take courage from her positive and upbeat demeanor. It is further my hope that the Table Tennis athletes traveling to Glasgow to represent St. Kitts and Nevis in the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland (23 July-- 3 August)‎, will be motivated to perform on and off the field in superlative ways. Her memory deserves it. 

Alphonso E. Bridgewater

President/SKNOC--CGA
