The Member of Parliament for Kpando joined the Board of Govenors, The Headmaster, staff, past students and students of Bishop Herman College in the celebration of the college's 67 Speech & Prize Giving Day in Kpando.
She inspected the outstanding Airforce Cadet Corps with the Headmaster and other dignataries. Also present were the Municipal Chief Executive of North Dayi who represented the Regional Minister, and Mr. Sarpong from the Regional Education Directorate and several past students from Bishop Herman College and Ola Girls School.
In her speech, Mrs. Sowah commended the school for bringing laurels to Kpando and making the people of Kpando proud. A team from the school came second in the National Independence Day Quiz this year. Earlier, a teacher of the school Mr. John Klabi won the National Outstanding Science Teacher. Again in 2018, Mr. Nicholas Gborse a teacher of the College was adjudged Ghana's Most Outstanding Teacher.
Whilst commenting on the theme "Discipline, Hardwork and Creativity; Key to Academic Excellence," Mrs. Sowah urged them to add the virtue of confidence so they can bring many more awards to the school and the Kpando municipality as a whole. She noted that discouragements may have been the reason for Bishop Herman College's team's early exit from the National Science and Maths Quiz. She noted that confidence in a 17 year old boy; David of the Bible fame, delivered the nation Israel from the hand of Goliath.
Mrs. Sowah informed them of her discussion with the Headmaster; Mr. Atimah to undertake a project titled "One Old Student, One Desk and Chair." She donated concrete benches to the school to replace the wooden ones.
