MONROVIA–The 22nd Commencement speaker of the William Booth Junior and Senior High School situated in the commercial district of Red-light on the Pipeline Road, Mr. Daniel Y. Mulbah has challenged graduates of the institution to always add moral value to their academic achievements.
Speaking to hundreds of students on Friday February 19, 2021 at the Paynesville City Hall, Mr. Mulbah said any education without moral value has no space in the new Liberia that many Liberians hope to see soon.
According to Mr. Mulbah, many graduates from high schools and universities are finding it difficult to find better jobs due the lack of moral values in them, thereby challenging William Booth Graduates of the NIKOA class (Victorious In Our Struggle) to seek obedience first and all other things shall be added to them.
The Guest speaker who is an alumina of the Salvation Army William Booth High School in Paynesville graduated with honor in 1999 when the country was undergoing difficult times during the civil unrest.
Since his graduation from the noble William High School, Mr. Mulbah with the divine intervention of God coupled with the practice of moral value has been able to work with several National and international organizations in and out of Liberia.
During the program, a special message from the officer Commanding of the Salvation Army Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea Command Lt. Col. Samuel Mkami was read on his behalf because of his absent due to other engagements at the Headquarters of the Salvation Army Mission in Liberia on 17th street Sinkor Monrovia.
In the Officer Commanding message to the NIKAO class, he said “we are glad God is sustaining us through COVID-19 struggle to seeing you graduate today I am proud of you as head of Mission and Manger of the Salvation Army schools in Liberia, Sierra Leone and the Republic of Guinea”.
The Salvation Army Head of Mission urged the graduates to always allow the motto of their class (Victorious In Our Struggle) to continuously motivate and remind them to seek God, study lessons and prove at all times that in the midst of all things, they continuously added efforts to their determinations to graduate from High school, the success they are celebrating today.
At the same time a message from the Director of Education of the Salvation Army School System David S. Massaquoi Sr. was read on his behalf.
According to Director Massaquoi, the name NIKAO speaks volume of the magnificentaccomplishment the graduates made in overcoming the struggle of learning in Liberia as well as the unavoidable difficulties the COVID-19 added to the academic year.
“As you move forward in your educational pursuit, let no difficulty, challenge, trial or misfortune stand between you and your dream, strengthen your mind and heart that there will always be difficulties but increase your faith with hope that there will always be a solution to every problem;” Director Massaquoi concluded.
