The Bassa High School system in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, on March 24, celebrated its 90th gala anniversary to the excitement of residents.
Grand Bassa County Superintendent, Joseph Levi Demmah, served as the keynote speaker. He told the students and their instructors that the anniversary symbolizes 90 years of “invaluable services and an impeccable record” that the school has achieved owing to the commitment of its founding fathers to the cause of quality education as well as their passion to develop the resource capacity of the county and the country.
Supt. Demmah reiterated that if the pioneer students of the school were not determined, prepared and willing to face the challenges, the milestone of the school would not have been achieved.
He called on the administration to remain resilient, robust and committed so that the teachers can instill quality education in the students, adding that the success of the students will bring pride to the teachers.
He urged the students to avail themselves for the task of learning that would make them thoroughly prepared to play meaningful roles in society.
During the colorful program, the queens of the morning and evening sections of the school, Esther Freeman and Marilyn Nuka, were respectively crowned for the 2015-2016 academic year.
The principal of the school, Vee Moillach Sheriff, expressed gratitude to all those who contributed to making the program a success.
