MONROVIA, August 5 (LINA) - Six Liberian graduates from the East China Normal University, and the Huazhong University of Science and Technology have returned home with graduate degrees from the Asian country.

They earned degrees in Education, Public Administration and Land Resources Management.

In a meeting with Vice President Joseph Boakai, the graduates thanked him for the opportunity to study in China under the sponsorship of the Ministry of Commerce of China.

They pledged to join the Vice President in his drive to cultivate a new culture in the society that will Think Liberia, Love Liberia and Build Liberia, according to a

The graduates, T. Samuel B. Fayia, Zwannah Kimber, Henry B. Katta, Silas N. Juaquellie, and Christian Cleon further told the Vice President that they were glad to be back home to join their compatriots in the nation-building process.

The sixth graduate, from Sun Yat-Sen University, Gbeh Salinto Montgomery, who pursued a Masters of Public Administration degree directly from a Chinese Government scholarship, also expressed joy at returning home to contribute to State building.

The graduates met with Vice President Boakai at his Capitol Hill Office Thursday.
