Montserrado County District 6 Representative, Samuel R. Enders has cautioned graduates of the Carver Mission Academy High School not to be complacent with high school diplomats but should instead pursue university/higher education.
Rep. Enders who is also the founder of the African Dream Academy also called on parents to encourage their girls to pursue higher education, rather than introducing them to early marriage, thereby describing them as Liberia’s only hope.
He made the call on Friday, when he served as Guest Speaker for the 34th Graduation ceremony of the Caver Mission Academy High School, held at the Effort Baptist Church in Paynesville.
Rep. Enders, in his motivational speech also stressed the importance of girls’ empowerment through education, something he said is very critical towards the socio-economic development of Liberia.
He added that women play significant role in the transformation of any society which Liberia is of no exception, indicating that participation of every Liberian within the political process is essential to ensuring that the country is governed democratically.
Rep. Enders then pledged to give each of the graduating student an amount of LD1,500 as his contribution for those who will sit the upcoming entrance examination of the University of Liberia.
For her part, the Dux of the Graduating class, Famata L. Dennis cautioned her colleagues to see failure as a motivation and energy to persevere, noting that there is no successful individual without a failure stories.
“Do not see failure as means of obligation to your success but see it as an energy, power and breakthrough, because you can never be successful without a failure story and disappointment,” she admonished.
