For services as principal of GUMS
The Ganta United Methodist School (GUMS) on Sunday, February 25 honored pastor Roger Domah for his services as principal of the institution for many years.
The school, through acting principal James Y. Korlorblee, said pastor Domah’s services as principal brought a lot of changes to the school. The staff, students, Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) as well as the local school board expressed their appreciation for his work and wished him God’s protection as he moves to a higher level in life.
A certificate of appreciation was awarded to Domah by the school, followed by many other gifts, including gowns and some books on leadership.
His wife, Anita Peah Domah, was also awarded a gift for standing by her husband while serving as principal and, at the same time, associate pastor of the Gompa District of the United Methodist Church.
In his response, pastor Domah thanked the school and the entire United Methodist family of the Liberia Annual Conference (LAC) for allowing him to serve as principal of the school for so many years.
He talked at length about his school days, revealing that he was never kicked out of school, even at the university level.
“I was blessed throughout my school days, because there was not a day that I was put out for school fees. People assisted me with scholarship, so after I graduated I returned to Methodist to render my service to the people,” Domah said.
Pastor Domah, now the Representative for Nimba County District #7, served as principal of the Ganta United Methodist School from 2012 to 2017 after losing the 2011 representative election to the outgoing Representative, Worlea Saywah Dunah.
He ran on the ticket of the Unity Party and won during the October 10 representative election. Although the result was challenged by one of the contestants, Evan Koah, however, a Supreme Court ruling finally declared Domah the winner.
His leadership as principal of the school brought about great changes in the behavior of the pupils, because of his stern disciplinary actions.
“There was not a day you saw pastor Domah sitting during school hours, until the school was over,” said one of the speakers.
Domah has meanwhile urged the incoming administration to be vigilant in the discharge of their duties as instructors, admonishing them to be firm on discipline.
