A former student of New Jerusalem Assembly of God Mission High School and student leader, Ms. Gloria T. Tamba has donated several anti-Ebola materials, including buckets, flyers, a carton of chlorine and detergents to help her school fight against the deadly Ebola virus disease.
At the presentation on Friday March 20, on the school campus opposite the National Transit Authority (NTA) outside Monrovia, the former student leader of the Movement for Student Integrated Party (MSIP), said she was delighted to join the students and the administration in combating the EVD and ensuring that the students are safe while in school.
Ms. Tamba, a Daily Observer reporter, said the anti-Ebola materials donated were valued at over LD10,000. “I want students to be safe and also be reminded that Ebola is still around and as such they must not be complacent.”
“We need to continue to observe all of the preventive measures until we win the war against the virus. Ms. Tamba added.
The former student leader said she was committed to identify with her school, especially during such a difficult time in the history of Liberia, and with Ebola’s horrible impact on the Liberian society.
Ms. Tamba said she would continue to support the school to demonstrate her commitment as a former student leader.
“This will also indicate that my promise as a former student leader was not about getting the presidency but to come back and respond to the needs of my school and students,” she indicated.
Receiving the items, Principal James M. Morris lauded Ms. Tamba, describing her, “as a diligent leader that stands by her words.”
Mr. Morris said, “We are proud of you Miss Tamba and want you to know that we appreciate your concern for the school. We know that you are always with us and will continue to be with us in everything.”
