President Akufo Addo has directed the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat to grant a full scholarship award to Thomas Amoaning, a student of Adeiso Senior High School who scored 8’A’s in the recently released WASSCE results.
The scholarship will see him through his tertiary studies.
The poor student who lives in a rural community [Asuaba] has shocked many with his brilliant performance after an interview with him went viral on social media which drew the President’s attention to him.
The Scholarship Secretariat in a statement signed by, Kingsley Agyemang, Registrar of Scholarships, said it has “established contact with the student and parents and will on Friday, November 27, 2020 pay a visit to the family to discuss their needs in detail.”
The Secretariat seized the opportunity to inform the WASSCE graduates to prepare themselves for a big announcement on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
It added that the retooled Ghana Scholarships Secretariat is now strategically positioned to effectively deliver on its mandate of awarding scholarships to Ghanaians for tertiary education.
