Leyman Gbowee Urges Stella Maris Graduates

By Edwin G. Wandah
The 2011 Nobel Peace Laureate, Leymah R. Gbowee, has urged the 20th Convocation Graduates of the Stella Maris Polytechnic, 2019, to pursue the challenge that lies ahead of them with dignity and diligence, exhibiting a high level of integrity in their pursuit for excellence.
Serving as Keynote Speaker at the event on Friday, August 30, 2019, Madam Gbowee urged the graduates to work harder, with Honesty, integrity and diligence.
She said, without these, there can be no success, furthering, that, if the graduates want to make those gains other students around the world are making, they should avoid being carried away by politicians and people who will not offer anything to them.
As Madam Gbowee’s message resonated, several students, including the entire hall that was jam-packed with family members of the graduates as well as authorities of the Stella Maris polytechnic were seen jubilating, with some standing on their heels shouting above their heads.
Beginning with a brief narrative of her life span, Madam Gbowee encouraged the graduates to lift up their heads, and see their society as a place to make the change they so desire.
“I come from Bong County; I suffered throughout the line, but along the way, my head was focused; I want to encourage you graduates today, not to be complacent, but roll up your sleeves and make the difference you want to see,” she stated.
“Another thing I would like to leave with you today is, hold on to your integrity, because that will speak for you, in life is your integrity,” she averred.
She further encouraged the graduates to also pursue excellence in their approach as they walk out of the walls of the institution. “This school, Stella Maris, is noted for its excellence when it comes to academics, so as you go out today, maintain this mark of excellence, because, this will show the true light of your knowledge,” she stated.
Earlier on, the President of the Stella Maris Polytechnic University, Sr. Mary Laurene Browne elaborated on some of the gains made over the years.
Giving the overview and status of the institution, Sr. Mary Laurene Browne assured the audience that the University will continue to make the difference on the educational sector of the country.
She further stated that under her watch, it was better to produce graduates who could represent the nation outside. For his part the Chaplain of the University, Father McDonald Nah blessed the graduates and invoked God’s anointing on them.
