Scotiabank made a special presentation to Marva Bernard, former president of the Netball Jamaica, for her contribution to the development of the sport. The presentation was made by Jacqueline Sharp, president and chief executive officer of Scotia Group in her office at the ScotiaCentre, on Tuesday.

"We have seen your dedication and hard work and wanted to personally express our appreciation to you for all that you have done for netball over the years," said Sharp.

"Our netballers have risen to such great international prominence in recent years, and I think it is safe to say that a lot of this success has been attributable to your determination," she added.

Scotiabank has been supporting the Netball Jamaica since 2006 when Bernard first made an appeal to the company for assistance. Since then, the sponsorship has been focused primarily on the development of the Under-16 team and the establishment of a strong core of junior umpires.

Bernard in response used the opportunity to share her own words of wisdom. Success, she said is "really about relationship building".

"Persons need to remember that ethics and accountability are important and sponsors need to know that you are using their money wisely," she said.
