FIFTY-four students have been given bursaries from the Dormaaman Education Endowment Fund this year.
Instituted by the Dormaa Traditional Council in 2000, the fund has benefited 300 students so far to the tune of ¢600 million.
The 20 tertiary and 34 senior secondary students beneficiaries were presented with their cheques at an end-of year party organised by the traditional council last weekend at Dormaa-Ahenkro.
Addressing the ceremony, attended by Dormaa citizens from all walks of life, the Omanhene Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyeman Badu II, said education is the key to development and the traditional council would do everything possible to enhance it.
He commended the government for the introduction of the capitation grant which has brought about increase in school enrolment and urged parents to take advantage and send their children to school. Osagyefo Agyeman Badu stressed the traditional council’s readiness to ensure the development of agriculture in the area to provide employment for the youth.
He urged the government to live up to its promise of improving the road network and health facilities in the district.
He appealed to the people to live in unity and contribute their quota to national development.
Nana Kyeremeh Sikafo, Akwamuhene, advised the beneficiary students to live up to expectation and be role models to other students.
