IN line with modalities for the award, four students were shortlisted for the maiden event. After a meeting with the school’s team of administrators on November 26, 2015, it was unanimously agreed that Stella Akpanglo, a General Arts student, who scored an average mark of 72 percent, met the Fund’s criteria.

Thursday, May 5, 2016, was fixed for the award ceremony at the school’s premises and it turned out to be brief and colourful. Not only were the entire student body present but many dignitaries, including the school’s Board Chairman, Nene Kerker Zomabi, III, the Asafoatse of the Lomobiawe Clan of the Ada Traditional Area, who also happens to be a pioneer old student of the school; as well as Frank Nortei, a Board Member and Secretary of the Old Students Association, graced the occasion.

The awardee was decorated with a sash and received a cheque for Ghc1,500 (One Thousand Five Hundred Ghana Cedis) to cover her tuition fees for one year.

 

Interestingly, the event attracted wide publicity – both locally and internationally. The Telegram newspaper of St John’s gave prominence to the story in its May 30, 2016, edition.
