“I look forward to the entire experience of Miss Dominica 2015. I am very proud to be representing the company’s brand,” Blanchard said at the official sashing ceremony at the office of the Dominica Festivals Committee (DFC) on Friday.
General Manager of Petro Caribe Henry Blanco said that the company is pleased to sponsor Blanchard. “We are very glad to support her,” Blanco said.“She is a very educated lady and a professional and we believe that she is going to be a very good representative of Dominica in any of these international countries.”
Meantime Normanna Jno Baptiste who was sponsored by EMS Ltd, described the announcement of her sponsorship as “an auspicious moment for me.”
She said, “Being officially sponsored brings me one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming Miss Dominica.”
She thanked the company for their investment in her and pledged her commitment as Miss EMS Ltd, “to represent and market our products to my fullest potential.”
A representative of EMS Ltd, Evadney Esprit said the company is elated to sponsor Jno Baptiste, who is also an employee of the company.
“Miss Normanna is part of our group and today we are pleased and we are elated to provide full sponsorship towards her journey to the throne,” Esprit said.
Product Promotions Manager at Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) Kathy Cuffy Jno-Jules is commending the two companies for what she described as a “bold move” to come on board and sponsor a queen contestant.
“This is indeed another special day for Beyandra Blanchard and Normanna Jno Baptiste and Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) as the two young ladies each secured sponsorship. Your sponsorship for carnival is indeed quite essential and we want to thank you very much,” Jno-Jules said.
