The Former Vice President for Fiscal Affairs at the University of Liberia or UL, Professor Wilson K. Tarpeh, has admonished students across the country to focus on their lesson for better achievement if they take on the mantle of authority as the future generation.
Mr. Tarpeh said nothing good comes easy in life, stressing that as high school students entering college, being studious was the best option for academic excellence – something to better prepare oneself for greater societal role.
According to Professor Tarpeh, in order for students to be useful citizens in the future, consideration must be given to the Almighty God first in every activity of life.
“ I want you to be discipline, humble, hardworking and you will get the chances you desire in life he adds,” Trapeh told the AMEU students yesterday November 26, 2015 at
he induction and fund-raising program of the Mass Communication Department.
The Liberian Educator also noted that students nowadays were undergoing serious challenges as it relates to the payment of tuition fees, cautioning the newly elected student
eadership of the Mass Communication Department against envying friends for what they had. He said the idea of envying current ‘well-to-do’ friends could make them lose their chances for the future.
“As students from this department, trust your ability today to lead; you must be the person you represent for tomorrow; you must monitor the decision you make as individuals in the society, because if you live your life to please your friends or focus on fixing hairs – something that will do you no good, then it is left with you,” Wilson Tarpeh cautioned.
He told the students that the sacrifice they make in acquiring knowledge and skills now may be the investment that ahead of them, further admonishing them to keep on
rying and don’t give up.
