Bong College Prexy Calls For Financial Support
By Philip T. Singbah, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, August 29 (LINA) - The Chairperson of the Interim Management Team of the Bong County Technical College (BCTC), Dr. Roland Massaquoi, has called on citizens of the county to galvanize financial support for the college to enable it run as a full university in the future.

In an interview with the Liberia News Agency recently, Massaquoi explained that budgetary support from the government and fees collected from students cannot cover the cost of running a four-year program at the college.

He said citizens should put in place measures to enable the institution raise money to run an effective four-year program.

He described the establishment of the BCTC as a “golden opportunity” that must be nurtured by every citizen of Bong County through financial and moral support, instead of always criticizing the management team and institution.

Dr. Massaquoi also revealed that the interim management team has completed the “profiling of students” attending the college for the past five semesters in order to have a first-hand understanding of the courses the students have done.

The BCTC interim President said the profiling process will enable administration design a course guide to help students know their statuses at the college.

“The student profiling process will take two weeks. Can you imagine some of the students have been at this college not knowing how many courses they have done? So, we strongly feel the introduction of the profiling of students would give them a sense of what they are doing at the college,” Massaquoi pointed out.

He noted that by September this year, the college will begin employing resourceful people to mobilize support for the institution through project writings.
