LDTC congratulates its graduating students
The Liberia Dujar Technical College on December 13, 2016, graduated 58 students in various disciplines.
The graduates who earned Associate of Applied Science degrees, had studied over a three year period. Of this number, 43 were females, and 15 males.
According to the academic statistics, 47 of the graduates obtained Associate degrees in Nursing Science ( ANSc ); five in Applied Science ( AASc) degrees in Agriculture, two in Civil and Mechanical Engineering and three in Electrical Engineering.
Tuesday’s commencement marked the second since the National Commission on Higher Education accredited the college as a degree granting institution.
County District # 12 Representative Richmond Anderson, told the graduates to use their education to contribute meaningfully to the overall development of the country.
Rep. Anderson challenged each of them to consider themselves as ‘ambassadors, or technical gladiators’.
“Do not shelve your technical and vocational knowledge, because the skills are more needed in the rebuilding of Liberia than the conventional skills like accounting, politics, sociology, etc.” he added. Anderson urged the college’s management to write the House and Senate Committees on Ways, Means and Finance requesting for financial subsidy. He said a copy of the letter should be addressed to him so that he will use it to lobby with his colleagues to include the college in the next fiscal year.
For the second time, witnessing our convocation program, we had a powerful attendance from our guests from Sweden (visitors from Finspång) who were there for a week to attend the commencement convocation.
