Receiving the jersey on behalf of the School, Principal of the Junior Secondary School, Mr. Eddie Amara described Mr. Yankson as a hundred percent C.K.C breed, who went through the school from Form 1 to Form 6. He was a complete athlete and an academic, who combined sports and academia perfectly which makes him a role model for the upcoming pupils.

Head of the Physical Health Education Department, Councillor Michael Baio told the old Boys that, this was not the first time Mr. Yankson had donated jerseys to the school team. During the school’s Golden Jubilee, when CKC was the best in every discipline, ranging from the schools certificate exams, BECEC, WASCCE and Sports, Mr. Yankson provided a new set of Jersey which the team used in the final match of the inter-secondary schools football competition where CKC emerged as Champions. He also donated prizes for the best athlete at the school’s annual prize giving and speech day.
