BWIAA Erects Anti-Ebola Billboard, Donates to Clinics

MONROVIA, June 19 (LINA) -The Booker Washington Institute Alumni Association (BWIA) has unveiled a welcome and anti-Ebola billboard near the Roberts International Airport (RIA) in Margibi County.

The association also made a donation of faucet-fitted buckets to two key clinics in the community.

A release from the association says the red and white, clearly-inviting modern billboard of high quality design and printing was erected through a  financial support from a businessman who is a member of the BWI Board of Governors.

The outgoing president of the BWIAA, Mr. Jonathan  Paye-Layleh, said the billboard was one of many initiatives undertaken by his administration.

Explaining the purpose of the project, Paye-Layleh said the association was touched by the devastating impact of Ebola to erect the billboard which carries both welcoming and Ebola prevention messages.

In addition to its welcome and farewell messages, the billboard has the inscriptions that read: “Make Ebola prevention a way of life and stay safe” as well as “Join the global fight to defeat Ebola”.

“This is our way of identifying with efforts still being exerted to get the public to appreciate the need to protect themselves from Ebola,” Mr. Paye-Layleh said.

BWIAA’s former president and current chairman of the association’s Board of Advisors, Mr. Mohammed Kanneh, cut the ribbon to the billboard, cautioning the public to continue fighting until Ebola no longer poses a national threat.

 Also in remarks, the oldest BWI alumnus at the program, General Paul T. Wennah of the Class of 1971, a former dean of boys, called for  greater unity among BWI graduates so that the alumni association will grow from strength to strength. 

The incoming president of the BWI Alumni Association, Mr. Koffa Tenbroh, and his corps of officers, who will be taking over on June 25, were present at the ceremony.

The billboard launch precedes the celebration of BWI’s 87th founding anniversary which is slated for Saturday, June 25.
