Dozens of students from various high schools in the township of Gardnersville and its environs last Wednesday endorsed the candidacy of Mark ‘Fox’ Keshen, who is vying for the senatorial seat in the upcoming Montserrado County by-elections.
The students, under the banner ‘Montserrado United Students Association of Liberia’ (MUSPAL), in their petition which was read and presented to Mr. Keshen by Samuel Coleman, said the student community of Gardnersville were overwhelmed by the level of contributions made by Mr. Keshen over the years.
“We are overwhelmed by the level of support you have been giving the student community; we the students of Gardnersville and the surrounding communities are pleased to endorse your candidacy for the Senate for the upcoming Montserrado County by-elections and words are inadequate to express our thanks for your support to us,” the MUSPAL petition noted.
Mark Keshen expressed thanks and appreciation to the students for their thoughtfulness and assured them of his support at all times in their educational pursuits.
He awarded 20 scholarships to the students and said the scholarships — 10 for elementary and junior high school students and 10 for senior high and university — are intended for students who are pursuing technical education.
