One of the Commissioners of the Independent Media Commission (IMC), Alhaji Dauda Musa Bangura, an indigene of Moyamba District, on 13th February 2016 awarded scholarships to pupils drawn from four schools within the District to complement Government’s effort in the education sector.

The pupils were part of those who participated in the just concluded ‘Brian of Moyamba Quiz Competition 2016’ organized by Radio MoDCAR as part of events marking the eleventh anniversary of the radio station.

Presenting the scholarships and learning materials to the Brian of Moyamba and other pupils who participated in the event, Commissioner Bangura thanked and appreciated the organizers of the competition and acclaimed the pupils for their exemplary performance.

He went on to state that he was touched by the outstanding performances by all the pupils as it is not an easy task to talk in public underscoring that if they start practicing now by participating in debates, with time they would have confidence in speak in public.

The Commissioner also congratulated the competitors and admonished them to take their academic work seriously as the District is known for producing scholars who have contributed immensely to the development of Sierra Leone reminding them that if they study hard, they would pass their examinations.

The winner of the competition, Monica Williams of SSS 2, Harford Secondary School for Girls, received a two year scholarship and learning materials. The winner of the second position was Sahr Combay of Kulafia Rashideen Islamic Secondary School while the third position was clinched by Frederica Wray of St. Joseph’s Convent Secondary for Girls, all of whom won a year’s scholarship each.

One of the Judges, Rev. Rosaline Freeman acclaimed the Commissioner for supporting education in the district which according to her, would motivate pupils to be studious and appealed to him to continue supporting such initiatives.

Mr. Kalil, another Judge from Bo Town urged other Moyamba stakeholders and indigenes to replicate the sterling example that would inspire pupils.

The Station Manager of Radio MoDCAR, Henry Lalugba, said with the right support, they would continue to organize similar competitions to help build the academic skills of pupils.

The event, which attracted other stakeholders including teachers and religious leaders from the entire District, was climaxed with the presentation of assorted learning materials to pupils.
