A former pupil of Olowora Primary School in Isheri, Lagos, Blessing Ugbebor, has charged pupils in the school to take their studies seriously and to be determined to succeed in life.
11-year-old Ugbebor was granted a scholarship to complete her 6-year secondary school education at Mind Builders High School, Alausa, also in Lagos.
Young Ugbebor recently addressed the current pupils at the school’s Assembly Hall, recounting how she became a beneficiary of a scholarship award at the Mind Builders High School.
“During the 20th anniversary of the Mind Builders High School, I was asked to give the vote of thanks. As fate would have it, an invited guest, Mr. Gbenga Badejo, identified me as somebody in need of assistance. He promised to take up responsibility for my six-year secondary school education in collaboration with the Board of the school, as long as I passed the school’s scholarship entrance examination.
“I was lucky to be among the five beneficiaries of the scholarship award. This is a dream that I never believed, even in my wildest imagination, could come true. I am very grateful to God for the all-round transformation that I have experienced in the past one year as a student of Mind Builders High School,” she stated.
Blessing urged the current primary six pupils of Olowora Primary School that will qualify to sit for the entrance examination into High school later in the month to be serious with their studies.
