TOWAFO Identifies With WASSCE Candidates In Margibi County

The Tonny Walker Foundation (TOWAFO), in Lower Margibi County has identified with several 12th graders across the Farmington Educational District who are among several others currently writing the West Africa Secondary School Certificate Exams (WASSCE).
The group through its Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Tonny Walker and others made a tour at all of the examination centers in the district donating test related materials to the students in order to ease them the burden of buying or missing any of the exams due to lack of testing requirements.
TOWAFO, in collaboration with the Ambassadors For Change In Support of Tonny Walker visited centers like the Phebe Gray High School in Shelflin Town, the Linda Thomas Greenfield Preparatory School in the Edward Beyan Kessellee Military Barracks, the Harriet E. Bailey United Methodist School and the Liberia Renaissance Educational Complex in Duazon.
The donated items included ballpoint pens, the exam required 2HB pencils, sharpeners, erasers and several bottles of drinking water.
According to CEO Walker, the initiative is a continuation of what his foundation has been doing for the past years to impart in the educational sector of the county as the country fights to eradicate the high rate of illiteracy among citizens.
He told the students to be focus on the exams and deal with phobia as a means to avoid malpractices that could result into disqualifiers or other penalties that could cause harm to their results in the WAEC administration.
He said the gesture was intended to encourage the students that the WASSCE Exam is not a strange evaluation that should instill fear into their minds and as such, the perception that many of them could fail should be roll out.
“This WASSCE exam is not strange to any student today because they have seen some of those same questionnaires in the classrooms and had even gone through exercises to approach and answer them,” Tonny Walker Stated.
The representative hopeful maintained that as a young person, he remains supportive of youth development through educational programs and initiatives that will help them become better people for the future of Margibi County and Liberia at large.
“I always identify with young people; it is my plan and hope to always be with the youths because I hail from that same direction and I am part of them and I will always be a blessing to them,” he assured the students in the county.
The students in return lauded Tonny Walker and his foundation for being the first in the county to identify with them in their challenging times and prayed to have him always around.
Some said in the times of WASSCE and other public exams, the only quest from students is to see aspiring leaders around that could serve as a motivation but they are hard to get and added that Tonny’s efforts will not go unrecognized.
“On behalf of the candidates writing the WASSCE at LREC, I want to thank Tonny Walker and his people for starting our journey with us. We will make them proud with the results so that their wishes can be realized,” student Rufus Paye intimated.
