Alumni of the 2001-year group of the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), on the 12th of July 2019, formally presented Air Conditioners to the school in aid of its sandwich programme, at the school’s Executive Hall.
The programme which was coordinated by Dr. Damoah Obi Berko, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Organisation and Human Resource Management, began with a prayer said by Mrs. Sophia Dapaah, the Alumni Office Coordinator.
Seated at the high table were Mr. Emmanuel Poku-Sarkodee, the School Administrator of UGBS and Prof. John K. Effah from the Department of Operations and Management Information Systems, UGBS.
In his welcome address, Mr. Poku-Sarkodee stated, “The large number of admitted sandwich students and the need to accommodate some of them on the main campus, since the Graduate Building was not enough, necessitated our call for assistance from Alumni of the School”.
He was grateful that they had honoured this request with the donation of air conditioners to create a comfortable learning environment for the students. He further urged other year groups to emulate the example of the 2001 alumni, in order to maintain and improve the high standards of the school.
The programme continued with a message from the class group’s representative, Mr. Yaw Owusu who also congratulated his colleagues for a good work done. He was thankful for the various platforms given them for connecting and hoped that they would achieve greater heights via those platforms.
Audience present stepped out for the presentation, which was done by Dr. Yvonne Lamptey, a Lecturer at the Department of Organisation and Human Resource Management as well as an Alumni of the 2001-year group. She handed the air conditioners over to the School Administrator on behalf of the year group.
Prof. Effah who doubled as the representative of the National UGBS Alumni President and also acted on behalf of the Dean of UGBS, showed appreciation and stated that universities all over the world rely heavily on their alumni, with UGBS being no exception. He spoke about how the School had evolved over time, noting the perceptible changes and acknowledged other year groups who had made various contributions to UGBS.
He further urged them to join the mother alumni network, listing the processes involved, and encouraged them to be active in seeking the welfare of the school, as the worth of their certificate was dependent on the progress of the school.
The programme ended with a vote of thanks, delivered by Mr. Poku-Sarkodee and a prayer said by Mrs. Dapaah, the Alumni Official Coordinator.
The University of Ghana Business School appreciates the support demonstrated by the 2001-Alumni year group.
