The Government of Dominica has taken the decision to rename a sporting complex in La Plaine to honor National Coach, Kurt Hector and Footballer Norran Jno Hope who died in a tragic accident at Pont Casse on April 19.
The facility which originally went by the name ‘R. M. G Sports Complex’ will now be known as ‘the Kurt Hector and Norran Jno Hope Sports Complex.’
Parliamentary Representative for the La Plaine Constituency, Hon. Petter Saint Jean believes the contribution of the fallen footballers to sports in Dominica will forever live on the lips, and in the hearts of residents and visitors.
He also said that their contributions will be noted in Dominica’s history.
Additionally, the Government of Dominica will grant two scholarships to the Dominica State College (DSC) to aspiring young sport personalities of good academic standing in the Southeast in honour of both Hector and Jno Hope.
A government scholarship will also be awarded to Kelly Hector, daughter of Kurt Hector, to facilitate completion of her studies at the Dominica State College.
