As a direct result of the trip, two national team players were recommended by the coach and the Foundation to a Junior College in Colorado. We are pleased to report that two of Saint Lucia’s female national football players received formal scholarship offers to attend Trinidad State Junior College in Colorado and have now enrolled and are eligible to play for the school, a significant local milestone. Ellaisa Marquis from Leon Hess Secondary School and Zanique Celestin from Micoud Secondary School are included in the fall roster: Click here and are now in the States benefiting from this opportunity.
