UL Alumni Give Back To Alma Mater

first_imgIn a commendable act of humanitarian gesture and giving back to one’s alma mater, at least 50 alumni of the University of Liberia jumpstarted the campaign to give the UL a facelift by giving more than US$4,000.00 and pledging more than 200 gallons of oil paint. Making remarks at the launch, UL President, Dr. Emmet A. Dennis, lauded the Alumni Association for the gesture and recounted the many contributions the Association has made to the institutions since he took over as president.“When we came on board, one of the first things we did was to challenge the University of Liberia Alumni Association, ULAA, to partner with us in the provision of scholarships, which it responded favorably. If the Alumni Association can respond positively when we were in ‘intensive care,’ I have no doubt that it can do even more; we are grateful to you,” he said.He named the provision of scholarships, primarily to its members and students, some of whom are in other parts of the world, including Connecticut, USA.Serving as the chief launcher, Alumnus and current Minister of Defense, Mr. Brownie J. Samukai, a member of the Class of 1984, said the UL had a profound impact on his young life for which he will always be internally grateful. “That’s why we want to come back every time to this school,” he said. “The four years I spent here were the best time of my life.”Other notable alumni who came to the aid of their alma mater were Banker John B. S. Davies, Class of 1998, President and CEO of the Liberia Bank for Development and Investment (LBDI); Counselor David A. B. Jallah, Dean of the Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law; Mr. David Farhart, former Minister of Finance; Dr. Eugene Shannon, former Minister of Lands, Mines and Energy; Mr. Thomas Doe Nah, Executive Director of the Center Transparency and Accountability International (CENTAL); Mrs. Atty. Nedia S. Kamara, who also represented her husband, Mr. Boima S. Kamara, Deputy Governor of the Central Bank; and Senior Economist, Samuel D. Tweah, Jr., among others.The Administration of the University of Liberia, in collaboration with the UL Alumni Association (ULAA), recently launched the campaign to paint some of the infrastructure on the campuses of the University. The program was held in the UL Park on the Capitol Hill Campus of the institution, a release signed by Mr. Norris Tweah, vice president, University Relations said. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
