American student To Do Design on Liberia’s culture

By John Bropleh, LINA Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, March 17 (LINA) - A young American university student, Lawrence Wyman, has undertaken to do an architectural design that depicts “the warm culture” of Liberia and present it to the Tubman University in Harper, Maryland County.

Wyman, an architectural engineering and graduating senior from Howard University in the State of Maryland, USA, is among nine architectural engineering students and four faculty staff from three African-American Universities, who arrived in the country at the invitation of the administration of Tubman University last week.

They are from the African-American universities Morgan, Tuskegee and Howard, according to the Liberia News Agency.

The team of students presented three separate proposed architectural designs for the Tubman University E-Brary project in Harper. 

The E-Brary project is a proposed electronic learning and resource center, intended to upgrade the standard of learning at the Tubman University, especially in the area of technology.

During the presentation ceremony held at the University’s Gallery, Wyman, in presenting a sunrise design, said students in Liberia’s highest institutions of learning have a sense of hope and brighter future, despite the country’s 14-year civil crisis.

Student Wyman, who hails from the State of Maryland, observed that Liberia has hope for the future from what he has seen since his arrival in the country, making specific reference to his 26- hour journey by road from Monrovia to Harper.

It can be recalled that during her recent visit to the United States of America, the president of the Tubman University, Dr. Elizabeth Davis Russell, entered into a partnership agreement with the three Universities.

The visit of the nine students and faculty is a result of the agreement.
