Eight students who performed exceptionally well at the just-ended inter-high school debate competition have received scholarships from the BlueCrest University College.
The eight students were selected from four schools that made it to the finals of the competition.
At yesterday’s presentation of the scholarship award letters to the winning students, BlueCrest Country Manager Rameshwar Mehrotra said each of the recipients will benefit for six months only to obtain certificates in computer networking and other courses the university offers. “Althought the scholarship is for a semester, it will be extended for a year when it expires depending on the academic performance of the recipients,” Mr. Mehrotra announced.
He said Blue Crest administration believes that education is the best gift and in that light, the institute awarded the scholarships to students who performed well in the competition.

He assured them that the selected beneficiary students will performance to meet the expected academic requirements.
“I strongly believe in these students’ academic performances, under no condition can they let me down. These students were not just randomly selected, they went through a rigorous selection process and were therefore qualified,” Devine said.
On behalf of the scholarship recipients, Satta F. Sheriff assured the administration of their preparedness to meet up with the required grade points to maintain the scholarships. Student Sheriff is also the speaker of the Liberia National Children’s Representative Forum.
