Kamal Sadick of the Techiman Learning Centre in the Bono East Region has emerged as the overall best student for the 2020 graduating class of the Jackson College of Education (JCE).
As the best student in science and education with a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.83, Sadick was adjudged the most outstanding student among 1,924 who graduated from the College after satisfying all requirements for the award of Diploma in Basic Education.
At the 9th Congregation of the College held virtually at its head office in Kumasi, Sadick delivered an impressive valedictory speech to the admiration of the faculty members and guests.
He highlighted how JCE has impacted their lives as young men and women when it opened its doors for them in 2017 to begin a three-year academic journey.
He described the past three years as concentrated doors of life, saying that, “right from the best relationships and the most enriching opportunities, down to the greatest moments of solidarity in times of grieves and despair, the support and inspiration from our management, supervisors, tutors, coordinators, and staff during our journey have been invaluable. For being with us every step of the way, for your encouragement and inspiration, we appreciate you,” he thanked the College on behalf of his colleagues.
He said despite the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the College provided them with modules, organized assignments, research, project works and examinations through a well-structured online platform.
Due to the pragmatic measures put in place by management, he said, their academic work was never affected by the pandemic thereby making them proud awardees of the University of Education, Winneba’s coveted certificate.
He encouraged his fellow graduands to lift high the flag of JCE as they stepped into the world of work as a sign of appreciation for all that the College has done for them.
“Let us progress to do the degree programme by registering with our alma mater so that by the year 2023 we will meet here for another graduation ceremony,” he implored his colleagues.
