The Saint Lucia Olympic Committee Incorporated expresses regret at the passing of Journalist Lawrence James who died earlier this week.
Lawrence Spencer James has been in the mainstream media for over 40 years during which time he covered several activities organised by the Saint Lucia Olympic Committee Incorporated and had the distinction of attending an International Olympic Academy session in Athens, Greece, on the recommendation of the SLOC.
James was editor of the MIRROR newspaper at the time of his passing and enjoyed a long career in the field of sports reporting. He first started as a proof reader at the VOICE newspaper before going into the editorial department. His disciplined approach to life was nurtured as a long standing member of the Saint Lucia Cadet Corps where he rose to the rank of Major and edited the Corp’s magazine.
The SLOC INC. would like to extend sincere condolences to his family, friends and the entire media and Cadet fraternity on his passing. His memory will always linger in our midst.
