FIFTY-TWO deserving students in some various Senior High Schools across the country have benefited from a scholarship scheme initiated by the Member of Parliament (MP) for Subin constituency, Mr. Isaac Osei. The gesture is basically to promote education in the constituency.
The students, being wards of Subin constituents, received a total of GH¢27,919 under the scheme being funded from the MP's Common Fund to cover the 2010/11 academic year.
Ten first year students received GH¢5,811, while GH¢10,402 went to 20 students in the second year, with GH¢11,706 going to 22 third year students.
The disbursement was upon the recommendation of a 15-member Fund and Development Committee appointed by the Subin MP.
Mr. Isaac Osei gave the assurance that those who excelled academically under the scheme would be given further assistance at the tertiary level.
The MP said he expected them to learn hard and take up the mantle of leadership in the future, and help in nation building.
