standard of all creatures, and it is the bedrock to development”, Mr. Beatah noted.He challenged the graduates to continue their education to become productive in society, reminding them that they are future leaders.
“My brothers and sisters, you are walking out of this school today, but I want you to remember that graduating from this step must not be
the end of your journey, and there are many steps ahead of you”.He lauded parents of the graduates for their financial support towards their children’s education amid economic challenges, noting that it was because of parents’ efforts, encouragement, patience and resources, the students completed their secondary education.
Mr. Beteah assured that government will continue to work with institutions in Liberia to improve the education system by creating good learning environment.He then commended instructors of the institution for molding the minds of the country’s future leaders. “You are not just instructors, but you are role models. There are students that want to be like you in future. Your services are not
only to this institution, but your country. You are the true heroes of our time.”
