-As Students Endure Hardship; Clarion Call To Well-meaning Persons And Entities To Help
As the 2019/2020 academic year is about to commence, the Principal of Richard Nenah Gaye Academy in Kebbah Community, Montserrado County Electoral District # 11, Joe N. Doepoeh has expressed disappointment about the dilapidated condition of the bridge connecting Johnsonville and Kebbah beginning from Pepper Wood Town Market.
Mr. Doepoeh expressed regret about the inaccessibility of the road especially the bridge as the raining season is still raging. He said students will find it difficult to reached the campus of the school due to the situation.
He also called on the government through the Public Works Ministry to open the main road connecting Johnsonville Road with Kebbah leading from Pepper Wood town in Johnsonville.
He said it is urgently Imperative that the road is accessible in order to help students from Johnsonville and other parts of rural Montserado to get to the school easily.
The school is the largest high school building serving several communities as well as parts of rural Montserrado county.
The school administrator therefore called on the Minister of Public Work who himself is a resident of Montserrado County Electoral District 11, Representative Richard Nagbe Koon, the newly elected Montserrado County Senator, Abraham Darius Dillon and other well-meaning Liberians to help and make the school accessible in a bid to boosting learning capacities of students in such isolated community.
The RENEGA Principal made the assertion recently in an exclusive interview with this paper during program marking the 3rd graduation ceremony of the school.
He buttressed the recommendation of the keynote speaker, Madam Princess Gaye Gamodo, daughter of the founder of the school, the late Richard Nenah Gaye to elevate the school to technical college level
He also endorsed the plan and recommendation by Madam Gamodo to connect the school to other schools in Europe and America especially in Australia where she presently dwells for the past years to advance students exchange program.
Mr. Doepoh concurred with Gamodo that the building has the capacity to be used for the operation of major technical college.
The RENEGA Principal also disclosed that plan is underway to begin this academic year with few technical courses.
He challenges the government through the Ministry of Education, the local authorities coupled with some charitable organizations to help provide incentives for the improvement of the school.
The school which was established in 2014 has an enrollment of only 250 students due its inaccessibility for the condition of the dilapidated condition of the road mostly the bridge.
