The Chairman of AATF (Adonis Abboud Trust Fund ) on Saturday 25th January 2020 awarded trophies and a cash prize of 2 million Leones to each of the best male and female graduates of the E.B.K University of Science and Technology at their congregation ceremony held at the University Secretariat, Magburuka, for the Conferment of Degrees and award of Diplomas and Certificates for the 2019/2020 academic year.
Before handing over the awards and cash prizes to Miss Aminata Koroma and Ibrahim Saidu Kuyateh, the two best students, Dr. Abboud reconfirmed his organisation’s commitment to recognise and motivate students who have excelled in the Universities .
He also clarified that the task of assessing and selecting the winners was done strictly by the University Administration.
Before handing over the awards and cash prizes to Miss Aminata Koroma and Ibrahim Saidu Kuyateh, the two best students, Dr. Adonis Abboud said it was part of the education support which his organization has been doing to help enhance the educational sector in the country. He furthered that his organization has nothing to do with the choice of the winners of these awards as their names were provided by the University to the organization as that had been a culture for many years.
The AATF Chairman noted further that without a healthy and well educated citizenry a country cannot develop. It is in such a regard that they will provide support to not only schools but Universities in Sierra Leone.
Talking to an official of AATF he said they believe that a nation can only develop and prosper through sound education and unity among its citizens.
