The Management of Firestone Liberia says it is upbeat for a student of its senior high school to obtain Division One in the recent West African Examinations. According to the Public Affairs Manager of Firestone Liberia, Mr. G. Rufus Karmorh, Management has commended Student Saidu Konneh for his brilliant performance in the WAEC Exams and his studious attitude exhibited during his educational pursuit at the Firestone Senior High School. Mr. Konneh said he intends to pursue a degree in medicine specializing in surgery.
According to the Public Affairs boss, Management is immensely pleased with this latest development because last year (2010), out of the five students who obtained Division Two in the WAEC administered exams; four came from the Firestone Liberia Senior High School.
Management views these positive developments as laudable for its school system and gives the credit to school administrators, teachers and other support staff of the company’s education department for their dedication, commitment and patience displayed over the years in molding the minds of employees’ children who are the future leaders of this country.
Mr. Karmorh divulged that the Firestone Senior High School remains one of the best high schools in Liberia. According to the Public Affairs Manager of Firestone Liberia, management is continuously equipping its computer and science laboratories as well as library as a means of providing a conducive learning atmosphere for students and a comfortable working environment for instructional staff.
Mr. Karmorh further disclosed that Firestone Liberia provides K-12 schooling free of charge to employees children. Additionally the Firestone Scholarship Program provides tuition for deserving students throughout the country to attend primary, secondary or undergraduate institution of their choice.
Concluding, Management wishes to reaffirm that it will continue to be an active partner in the educational and socio-economic development of Liberia.
