Former Vice President Bishop Bennie D. Warner last Thursday led scores of government officials and clergy to dedicate a US$250K newly constructed school in Mamba Kaba District, Margibi County.
The school is named in honor of Kaymah H. Warner, daughter of Bishop Warner, former Vice President of Liberia during the late President William R. Tolbert administration.
In remarks Rev. Dr. Sampson W. Nyanti said “blessed be the name of God forever, to whom belongs wisdom and might.”
Rev. Nyanti added that God gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.
In an overview of the KHW Academy, chief sponsor and patron Bishop Warner said the vision for the academy was through God, along with human labor.
Bishop Warner noted that the dream embodied the obligation of each generation to impart wisdom and knowledge to the next generation.
Bishop Warner said education transforms lives of people everywhere, in any society.
He also assured the teachers and administrators that everything will be done to equip the institution to ensure quality standard of instruction that will include computers and communication equipment.
When the new school starts full time teaching, Bishop Warner said 36 solar panels will be installed.
“We would like to acknowledge the support of churches and friends in Arkansas and Oklahoma, Power from Son, retired Peace Corps Volunteers (1961 and 1962), as well as the Liberia Annual Conference United Methodist Church,” he said.
He extended thanks and appreciation to all generous donors and sponsors during the various phases of the school project.
Earlier, the Resident Bishop of the United Methodist Church of Liberia, Dr. John G. Innis, consecrated the academy.
Bishop Innis noted that the dedication of the school will be in vain without the consecration of those whose gifts it represents.
In a special statement, Margibi County Chief Education Officer Goma Minnie assured the new school authorities of the Ministry of Education’s support.
During the dedication, Sister Mary L. Browne of the Catholic Church led the audience in a silent prayer and cut the ribbon to the new school.
Rev. Karyidia Paul Gartor led the audience during the dedication of the new school in Mamba Kaba District, Margibi County.
