The occasion was characterized by pageantry when the Liberia Marketing Association School System (LMASS) held its 25th thanksgiving and graduation exercises here on Sunday, 8 July at the school premises in Logan Town, Bushrod Island, awarding certificates to 32 kids who have completed nursery studies.
Addressing the jubilant graduating class of 2018, keynote speaker David D. Kollie challenges the graduates to persevere in their educational sojourn. Mr. Kollie, who spoke on the theme: “Education, A Key to Prosperity” says in order to succeed; kids must take their education seriously by studying their lessons.
The professional Lab Technician, who addressed the occasion in place of Montserrado County Electoral District #17Representative Hassan Kiazolu, expressed gratitude to parents for placing serious emphasis on their children’s education, something, he notes would go a long way in preparing them for future responsibilities.
He stresses that the success of any nation depends on the quality and sustenance of the kind of lessons learnt by its graduates who had sleepless days in their quest to obtaining sound and quality education.
Meanwhile, Rivercess County Superintendent J. Bismork Karbiah, commends the graduates for their patience, time and preparedness to acquire better education.
He calls on government to place more emphasis on primary and secondary education by providing an enabling environment that would attract children who are not in school because of unforeseen circumstances, to enroll.
He congratulates teachers and the school administration for adequately molding the mines of the 32 pupils, some of whose performance clearly demonstrates what they were taught in the classroom.
Superintendent Karbiah continuous the LMA school system has demonstrated patience and tolerance for members of the graduating class indicative by their eloquent speeches which must be extolled by all well-meaning parents in the country.
