Stu­dents bag GEC Academy’s out­stand­ing awards

Daily Trust - - DIGEST - From Nu­rudeen Oye­wole, La­gos

Two grad­u­at­ing stu­dents of the GEC Academy In­ter­na­tional La­gos, Oluchi Nwabuoku and Udeme Ebong have been con­ferred with the school’s out­stand­ing per­for­mance awards.

The school’s Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor (ED), Mrs Josephine Peters stated that while Nwabioku was rec­og­nized for emerg­ing as the best stu­dent in In­ter­na­tional De­gree Foun­da­tion Pro­gramme (IDFP) among the school class of 2017, Ebong was hon­oured for emerg­ing as the best over­all grad­u­at­ing stu­dent.

A state­ment from the ED said the duo were among other stu­dents who were rec­og­nized at the school’s 6th grad­u­a­tion/prize-giv­ing day cer­e­mony.

“It is im­por­tant for every­one to rec­og­nize and ap­pre­ci­ate these traits as uni­ver­sal and en­vi­able in na­ture be­cause these have be­come in­her­ent in all our stu­dents. It is thus my most hum­ble be­lief that all our stu­dents will make use of the op­por­tu­ni­ties and ex­po­sure this school has pro­vided them as a plat­form to ex­cel in their dis­ci­plines in Nige­ria and abroad,” Mrs Peters stated.

The school’s Direc­tor of Stud­ies, Dr. Ghalib Fa­had said the amount of suc­cess their past stu­dents have been record­ing in uni­ver­si­ties across the world tes­tify to the school’s “right for­mula”.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the La­gos State Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, Mrs Ajoke Gbe­leyi ad­vised the grad­u­at­ing stu­dents to be good am­bas­sadors of their alma mater and Nige­ria any­where they find them­selves. She also charged them to re­turn to the coun­try and put into prac­tice “good ideas, and learn good ex­am­ples from lead­ers.”
