Monrovia, Liberia, April 16, 2024—Following her recent induction as President of LEVI C. Williams High School in Monrovia, Student Euphemia L.M. Gibson has challenged her fellow students to serve as role models and safeguard the future of Liberia’s next generation.

“To my fellow students, as your President, I want to challenge and encourage you; let’s see ourselves as role models to the younger ones, who are Liberia’s next future leaders, ” she said.

Her caution comes at the time when school-age children and youth are getting on the streets, taking narcotic substances, something that is hugely contributing to the number of disadvantaged youth alias zogoes in society.

But speaking when the school administration hosted an inaugural program for the student council government of the school at Clar Marie Weah Event Hall on 12th Street, a suburb of Monrovia, Student Gibson urged her colleagues to uphold good moral values and portray a positive image for the future.

“Today, I want to encourage you, my fellow students. Let us serve and see ourselves as role models because we are the future and next-generation leaders of Liberia,” she said.

Her election saw seven students taking up leadership role in the institution.

Those elected include Euphemia L.M. Gibson, president; Peejay G. Mulbah, vice president; Nectar K. Kolison, secretary; David O. Tarpeh, speaker; Paris Satia, representative; Jonathan E. Toe, Jr., financial secretary, and Faith Jones, chaplain.

She disclosed that her leadership had purchased a new flag, whiteboard erasers, and markers for the school.

“We thought of more to do, and we work tirelessly to be good and shining examples to our students, who are going to be the next group of future leaders,” Euphemia added.

She further challenged her colleagues to stay focused and persistent because, together, they can achieve great things and make lasting memories that will transform their lives in years to come.

“Let’s support one another, lift each other up, and always remember that we are stronger together if we keep pushing to achieve our dreams.”

She expressed gratitude to her parents, school staff, and fellow students, who supported her during the electoral period. She said, “I’m excited for the journey ahead and for the opportunities to collaborate with amazing people like you.”

“We must all be innovative and positively impact our school; thank you for entrusting me with this important role; I promise to serve all of you with great enthusiasm.”

She vowed to work with the administration to ensure every student on campus has a safe space and freedom of choice in decision-making.

The inaugural ceremony, held on April 11, 2024, at Clar Marie Weah Even Hall in Monrovia, brought together parents, students, visitors, and well-wishers.

It was characterized by a series of activities, including dance performances, poems, and songs. Editing by Jonathan Browne
