Scotiabank’s Senior Manager for Marketing and Public Relations Ms. Leah R. Davis applauded the enormous efforts of the Special Olympics Bahamas team, “Preparing the team to not only represent the Bahamas at the World Summer Games in Athens has been an colossal team effort and the coaches, organizers, volunteers and corporate Bahamas are to be commended for their commitment.” She added, “We at Scotiabank know that corporate social responsibility is not just a responsibility, it is an opportunity.

Investing in the community that invests in us just makes sense. Our Bright Future Program provides the Bank with the opportunity to increase our visibility in the communities where we live and work, building relationships with this generation of customers, and the next. Scotiabank is elated to serve as leading sponsor Special Olympics Bahamas.”
