$100,000 for St Edwards Secondary School, Freetown
A universally recognized intellectual, Professor Alusine Jalloh, has donated the sum of $100,000 to St Edwards Secondary School, Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Professor Jalloh made the donation during an impressive ceremony marking the 91st anniversary of the school held on the school campus on Thursday, last week. The money is meant for the construction of a monumental multi-purpose complex for the school; and the complex is to be named after him.
While donating the money, Professor Jalloh called on parents to invest in the education of their children, describing education as the key to success. He recounted the difficult days through which he went to become a success story today, urging the pupils to treat education with every seriousness and to remain dedicated and focused as they are future leaders.
“Great students are a result of great studies,” the professor remarked.
Reverend Father Garrick commended Professor Jalloh for making such a historic and generous donation to boost the school to a higher height, describing the professor as a proud product of the school.
An SSS pupil, Abass Kamara, on behalf of the student body, lavished thanks and praise on Professor Jalloh for the never-to-be-forgotten gesture.
