LINSU Cheers Gov’t For $140k To Restore Burnt William Booth High

By Robert Dixon, LINA

MONROVIA, April 20 (LINA) - The Liberia National Student Union (LINSU) Montserrado County chapter has commended the Liberian Government for providing US$140, 155 to renovate the Salvation Army-owned William Booth Junior and Senior High School gutted by fire on March 4, 2015.

LINSU Montserrado County chapter president Mohammed Donzo said his group considers it an obligation as a student group to commend the Liberian Government through the Finance and Development Planning Ministry for coming to the aid of the school.

Speaking Monday during the presentation of a certificate of appreciation to the Minister of Finance and Development Planning, the student leader said they as a student group will not criticize the government negatively, but will commend it for the strides it is making in empowering the youth.

He encouraged students of the William Booth School to always strive for excellence, and to report any suspicious activity that might affect their institution.

Mr. Donzo also called on the Government to remain steadfast in its commitment to educate the future generation.

Receiving the certificate on behalf of Finance Minister Amara Konneh, Deputy Minister Tanneh G. Brunson commended the student group for recognizing the effort of the government.

According toBrunson, the Government of Liberia provided support to private schools through budgetary allotment to enable school administrators make salary payment to teachers and other staff.

She said during the peak of the deadly Ebola virus disease last year, which forced the closure of schools, private institutions were unable to pay salaries due to lack of funding, while public school teachers were receiving monthly salaries, prompting private school authorities to increase tuition fees this year and the intervention of government.
