The third award ceremony, which was held on Thursday, October 12, 2017, turned out to be a very memorable one not only for the award winner, Miss Emelia Korlekuor Addowah, a 2nd Year Business Student, but also for the brainchild of the scholarship scheme, Miss Eleanor Louise Webb, who decided to grace the occasion primarily because it was going to be the icing on the cake, given the fact that the Government of Ghana was to introduce Free Senior High School policy, with effect from the 2017-2018 Academic Year.

  • But unknown to her, the management of the school in collaboration with the Administrations of the Fund, decided to show their appreciation to her for touching the lives of many families with the institution of the award.The headmistress, Mrs Valencia Quame summed it all up so beautifully when she stated the purpose of the gathering thus: “We are here for two important reasons: ONE, to meet and honour Miss Eleanor Louise Webb, a beautiful Canadian woman “who has exuded Godly Christ-like example by exuding exemplary love, kindness and grace to wipe the tears off the faces of others so as to afford them richer opportunity to excel in life”; and TWO, to honour the third winner of the annual scholarship award instituted by the Webb of Excellence Scholarship Scheme.

Moments later, a pleasantly surprised and totally humbled Miss Webb was gorgeously transformed into clothing reserved for royalty in recognition of passion and commitment to the development of the school. She was then presented to the gathering as ‘Development Queen of Ada SHS’ under the stool name NAANA KABUKIE ADASCO 1.

 

Assisted by the headmistress, Naana Kabukie ADASCO 1 later decorated Miss Emelia Addowah, the third recipient of the award with a sash and presented her with a cheque for Ghc1,768 (One Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty-Eight Ghana Cedis) to cover her tuition fees for her second year.

Dignitaries, who graced the occasion included Hon Alex Tettey-Enyo, a former Headmaster of the school and former Minister for Education, Hon A. L. Akrofie, DCE of Ada West and a member of the pioneering 1965 group, Mr Knnenth Kabu Kanor, President of the Old Students Association, Pastor E. L Boyor, a former tutor of the school (1965 to 1978), Nene Dornu Dugbartey, Elder of Ada Foah, Mr Christopher Canacoo, Nene Ayiku Adjovu, the chief of Mantsekorpe, Rev N. T. Gagakumah, the School Chaplain and Mr Solomon Addowah, father of the awardee and an old student, 1989 Year Group.

 

After the event, the Fund hosted some 40 of the guests to lunch.
