BWI To Resume ROTC Course Next Academic Year
By Richard D. Baysay, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, March 23 (LINA) -The Booker Washington Institute (BWI) in Kakata, Margibi County will next academic year 2016/2017 resume the teaching of compulsory Reserved Officer Training Corps (ROTC) course.

The Reserved Officer Training Corps was one of the major courses taught at BWI prior to the Liberian civil crisis.

Making the pronouncement at a press conference over the weekend on the campus of the BWI, Principal Harris Fomba Tarnue said the essence of reintroducing ROTC in the school’s curriculum is to teach ‘courtesy and discipline’ among students.

“For us at BWI discipline and leadership training is one of our cornerstones and the Reserve Officer Training Corps will immensely help us achieve more in that direction,” Mr. Tarnue noted.

He said the ROTC program will also prepare and mentor students for the observance of National Flag Day celebration as well as prepare them for future national duty and help them develop a spirit of nationalism and patriotism.

He said the administration of BWI is currently holding talks with authorities of the Ministry of National Defense to provide logistics and technical support for the program as the BWI administration will ensure its full implementation.

Meanwhile, the Principal Tarnue has also disclosed that the ‘Voice of BWI’ (EL2BWI) radio station is expected to be restored in the shortest possible time.

He said it will be used as a practice radio station for students who are especially studying electronics.
