ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – On March 25, 2015, all roads will lead to the LIME Superfast Broadband Battle, a cheerleading faceoff among four rivaling teams of cheerleaders from the Elmore Stoutt High School (ESHS).

The territory’s largest high school held a press conference today March 11, 2015 in the school’s compound to speak about the plans for the event and to give a sneak peak of what is to come.

Speaking to members of the media, acting Principal of the ESHS Ms Sandy M. Underhill said that the event was just conceptualized a few days ago.

“This [idea] was planted as a seed just about a week and a half ago and unbelievably we have come together as a team of Elmore Stoutt High School, the Physical Education Department and the overwhelming support of the faculty and staff and the community to pull off the first ever cheerleading competition under my leadership and with the assistance of everyone else,” she said.

Underhill said the money raised from the event will go back to the school. However, she said it is too early to give a full breakdown of how the money will be spent. She said, however, it will be put to “good use".

The teams that will be competing in the faceoff will be Team 1: Lettsome, Team 2: O’Neal, Team 3: Flemming, and Team 4; Carlisle.

“I want to welcome you and I want to ask you to come out and support us on March 25, 2015. It’s going to be a night of unbelievable entertainment. We have a lot to offer you and we’re pulling this together in a very short space of time so I am going to ask for your support,” said Underhill.

Tira B. Hodge, Chairperson of the Cheerleading Committee said they were looking for ways to bring about a nice big fundraiser for the school.

“So we decided to separate our cheerleading competition from the actual sports day. It is something that we are very excited about and LIME has offered to generously support us in this aspect and we allowed them to do so. So they will come in and do a LIME Superfast Broadband Battle. The event will be…at the Multipurpose Sports Complex. We will begin with our rally at 5:30 PM and thereafter we will have the competition beginning at 6:00 PM. We will have a halftime show, we will have opportunities to win prizes. So we are encouraging our community to come out in their house colours," she said.

Speaking on behalf of LIME’S General Manager Sean Auguste, LIME’s Head of Consumer Sales and Services Ravindra Maywahlall said the company is excited to be a part of the event. “We started working with the ESHS last year at the back to school bliss where we gave away 1,000 ice creams and snow cones to the students,” he said.

“It was no gimmick, it was just a gesture to encourage our students to do well,” he said. “Since then the school has had a new principal, one that I am told is a lot like Joe Clark from the movie ‘Lean on Me’. She wants a positive change for this school and she is willing to work with any organisation which wants the best for her students, which clearly means she wants to work with LIME,” said Maywahlall.

He said also that today LIME is launching its new fibre network so “by the time the LIME Superfast Broadband happens on March 25, 2015, thousands of persons in the country will be operating on the superfast network.”
