Eight students will receive a boost in their educational journeys through the YFM/LUCAS College Scholarship. The students were presented with their scholarship during LUCAS College Open Day last Saturday on campus in Abelenkpe.
The eight lucky students received generous scholarships that will allow them to further their university education at LUCAS College.
Speaking about the maiden edition of the YFM/LUCAS College Scholarship program, Ms Naa, General Manager of YFM said: “Education is a gift that no one can take away and as such YFM in collaboration with LUCAS College decided to give this special gift to these eight special people.”
“As you continue your journey, know that education is very precious and you need to value it. Your education will be with you always. It is the best gift anyone can ever give you,” she said.
Four winners were unable to attend but Ebenezer Agorhom, Bernard Otchere, Eric Fordjour and Prosper Nunoo showed up and gladly received their awards.
Speaking after the presentation, Eric Fordjour, one of the scholarship recipients said: “I’m very thankful to have the opportunity to attend a university that cares about me and my success. I’m grateful that YFM/LUCAS College cares enough to create a Scholarship that will enable me continue my education.”
Dr Paul Danquah, Head of IT at LUCAS, also said, “One of the key reasons why students choose to come to LUCAS College is the staff and academic structure which equips you for the working world. We have established a culture that I think describes our scholarship program – it’s a culture of care, it’s a genuine sense of concern for other human beings and it’s a real commitment to our mission.
He continued, “Our mission is to help our students become successful. The mission of Leaders University College for Applied Science (LUCAS) is to bridge the gap between the working world and academia. Through hands on teaching, we train and equip students to thrive and find success in the professional world.”
