Speech: Above and Beyond
by Wendell Mottley
July 21, 2017
Good Evening – Let me acknowledge all Government Ministers and other esteemed guests but especially let me acknowledge the young people who are here. My remarks are particularly addressed to them.
I was very pleased when Mark Loquan, President of NGC, invited me to speak at this inaugural launch of “Above and Beyond”, a project to celebrate national achievers.
I was even more delighted that sport was selected as the first arena to highlight national achievement. And, I can think of no finer example of the contribution that sporting achievement makes to our nation, than my friend Hasely Crawford – our first Olympic gold medalist.
