Mr. Sampson Abbey-Armah, the District Chief Executive for the area, said the purpose of establishing the Fund was to fulfill President John Dramani Mahama’s Better Ghana Agenda.

Mr. Abbey-Armah praised the Member of Parliament for the Awutu/Senya Constituency, Madam Hanna Serwaa Tetteh, for the immense financial and moral support she had been offering the scheme since its introduction four years ago.

Mr. Abbey-Armah announced that Madam Tetteh contributed GHs8,000.00 from her share of the MP’s Common Fund to the scholarships awarded.

In a message read at the brief ceremony, at which the cheques for the beneficiaries were presented to parents and representatives of schools at Awutu-Beraku, Madam Tetteh expressed the hope that the scheme would go a long way to help the Assembly produce more qualified technocrats to enhance the socio-economic development of the district.

Mr. Abbey-Armah and Ms. Anna Belinda Baidoo, the Awutu-Senya District Director of Education, both advised beneficiaries to take advantage of the offer to engage in serious studies to produce credible results at the end of their respective courses.

Students in the various Nursing Training Institutions had the highest allocation of GHs10,000.00 from the chunk of money voted for this year’s award to help defray their school fees.

They were followed by students in the Bawjiase Senior High School, with GHs6,082.50, while the Awutu-Obrachire Senior High School also gained GHs1,583.70, while the Senya Senior High School got GHs1,163.00.

The parents and students who attended the presentation ceremony thanked the District Assembly for the offer and promised to work hard for excellent returns.
