Lenel donates security products to Little League World Series

October 2002 News

Lenel Systems International recently donated its products and personnel to secure the 2002 Little League World Series, which was held in Pennsylvania, United States.

Lenel supplied an OnGuard system to produce photo identification badges for the more than 3000 players, coaches, volunteers, and members of the media from all corners of the globe. The system also secured both stadiums, in which more than 300 000 spectators attended games over the course of the nine-day event. Lenel personnel were present throughout the event to participate in the installation of the system and to assist with various security procedures.

This marks the fourth consecutive year that Lenel has contributed technology and expertise to the Little League World Series. In recognition of the company's longstanding support of this popular and cherished youth event, Lenel's co-founders were recently invited to the White House. Elena Prokupets, Lenel's president and CEO, and Rudy Prokupets, Lenel's chief technology officer, toured the White House and watched a Little League game on the South Lawn with President George W. Bush.

During their visit to the White House, Lenel's founders brought a commemorative Little League badge for President George W. Bush that featured the President's childhood Little League photo

"Although we feel honoured to have been invited to the White House," remarked Elena Prokupets, "it is an even greater honour to continue our participation in this vital and captivating event. Lenel is a company that firmly believes in giving back to the community, and we hope to be affiliated with the Little League World Series for many years to come."
