Deputy House Speaker Prince Moye has promised to underwrite 30% of tuition cost of any student attending the newly opened Sumo Moye Memorial Institute on the Lofa Road in Gbarnga, Bong County.
The Sumo Moye Memorial Institute is a state of the art academic and vocation institution constructed by Deputy Speaker Moye to provide quality education to residents of Bong County.
Speaking in an interview recently with reporters, the National Media Consultant in the office of Deputy Speaker Moye, Mohammed Melvin Kwenah said the gesture is meant to ease the economic burdens faced by many parents in the county.
The pronouncement by the deputy speaker is seen as a huge boost to parents who desire to send their kids to attend the institution.
According to Kwenah, the institution will offer mass communication to students who are interested in journalism, adding that it is Moye’s way of helping the underprivileged to acquire quality education.
Kwenah reveals that the Sumo Moye Memorial Institute is a secondary school of excellence which focuses on the delivery of 21st century educational and life-long learning experiences, using a student-centered approach to curriculum delivery in Bong County.
He explains that the goal of the institution is to stimulate and optimize the potentials of the next generation of leaders by creating a balance between academic excellence and hands-on technical and vocational training, as well as the development of critical thinking skills and problem solving ability of students.
Since the establishment of the school, residents have described it as meaningful contribution to the Bong County school system. The school is expected to be opened to the public beginning this 2019/2020 academic year.By Joseph Titus Yekeryan in Bong—Edited by Winston W. Parley
