ZWEDRU CITY, July 5 (LINA) - Grand Gedeh County Chief Education Officer, Harrison Darwolor, has admonished graduates of the Zwedru Multilateral High School to remain steadfast in their educational pursuits until they reach their peak.
He said if the country must have a bright future, then the youths must be adequately prepared to meet the challenges ahead for nation building.
The Grand Gedeh CEO made the remarks recently when he served as keynote speaker at the 36th graduation exercises of the school during which 175 students were awarded high school diplomas.
Rev. Darwolor thanked the parents and guardians for prioritizing the education of their children, describing it as “very positive” for the students and the nation.
He then challenged the graduates to go one step beyond their present standard to obtain skills required to make them marketable on the job market.
“Be it technical or academic, try to reach the peak of whatever you choose as your career to build Liberia after many years of delays in development, now that the nation is enjoying peace,” he emphasized.
In remarks, Principal Joshua Dorbor praised the Zwedru Multilateral Alumni Association for its support to the school over the years.
He said the association continues to make contributions to enable the school meet the goals and objectives for which it was established, including producing middle-level technicians to build Liberia.
ZMHS was established in 1978 as a vocational institution, the first in southeastern Liberia.
It offers courses in carpentry, masonry, auto mechanics, welding, agriculture, home arts as well as academic courses and computer science.
