Students Want Bassa Community College Relocated
By Johnson Bob Liway, Grand Bassa County Correspondent

BUCHANAN, Feb 13 (LINA) - Grand Bassa Community College (GBCC) students want authorities relocate the college to its newly completed Paynesberry Campus in upper Harlandsville, Buchanan City.

The student council president of the community college, Tarr Sayweh said relocation of the college to Upper Harlandsville will enable students learn in a better environment.

"If we don't move to the new campus this semester, many donors that are funding certain departments will withdraw their support to the institution as the present campus housing both Bassa High School and GBCC is very tight for conducive learning," Sayweh said.

Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency Wednesday, Sayweh appealed to authorities of the Grand Bassa County to make good their promise to the college through the County Development Fund (CDF) and Social Development Fund (SDF) received from the government and companies operating in the county respectively.

He named Health Sciences, Agriculture, Heavy Duty Mechanics, Electricity and Welding as departments that need to be urgently relocated to the new campus.

Meanwhile, student Sayweh is calling on President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to reconstitute the College's Board of Directors, adding, "they have outlived their usefulness. We want the new board to include businessmen and eminent citizens of the county.

Grand Bassa Community was established in 2008 to reduce the number of high school graduates seeking enrollment into universities and colleges in Monrovia, who would take advantage of vocational and technical training in Grand Bassa County.

The College has a current enrollment of over 750 students.
