By Ballah M. Kollie, LINA Bong County Correspondent

KOKOYAH, June 18 (LINA) – Bong County Senior Senator Jewel Howard Taylor has dedicated a new town hall in Jorpulor Town, Kokoyah Statutory District.

The town hall, valued at more than US$5,000, was a personal initiative of the Bong County Senator.

While in the district at the weekend, Senator Taylor also awarded scholarships to over 12 high school and university students and donated jerseys and footballs to the youths.

According to the Liberia News Agency, the Senator, who just returned from the district, also made a cash contribution to the district leadership.

In remarks at the ceremony, Paramount Chief Toga Glebo, thanked Senator Taylor for the gesture, noting that the hall will facilitate town meetings, while youths will use the facility to acquire training in democratic practices.

Meanwhile, Chief Glebo has called on the Bong County Senator Taylor to construct a similar town hall to host offices of the district’s leaders in Rock Crusher, the administrative seat of the district

In another development, Senator Taylor has been awarded the highest traditional honor of Boisen Administrative District in Kokoyah, Bong County.

As part of the honoring program held in David Dean Town, Senator Taylor was carried in a hammock for several minutes around the town by citizens and residents of the district.

The hammock, according to the citizens, symbolizes the cultural ties and respect for those who have diligently served humanity.

They named the introduction of bills establishing the Traditional Council as an autonomous institution of government, community colleges and creation of the office of the Assistant Superintendent for Fiscal Affairs in the various counties, as some hallmarks of Senator Taylor’s legislative work.

The citizens said the establishment of community colleges across the country has provided the platform for many young people to acquire higher education without having to move to Monrovia, the Liberian capital.

In response, the Bong County lawmaker thanked the citizens for recognizing her efforts and promised to continue to work with other policy makers in moving the county forward.

The latest honor brings to two the number of influential traditional honors bestowed on Senator Taylor in less than five years.

The first honor was the title of the famous Liberian Paramount Chief Nye Suakoko in 2011.
