You have also made an important contribution to education in our country, moulding the lives of young men and women who have in turn contributed to community and national development.

Your role instilling good work ethic and a desire to succeed in one’s work-life assists our youth in meaningful and beneficial ways. As a result nearly all of your young men have developed into productive members of our communities as well as good citizens.
