Ghana CEO Awards: Rev. Samuel Adjepong among 55 CEOs honoured
Fifty-five chief executive officers (CEOs) in the country have been honoured at the Ghana CEO Awards held in Accra.
Among the winners was the School Director of Alpha Beta Education Centres, Rev. Samuel Adjepong.
Speaking to the media after receiving the award, Rev. Adjepong expressed his gratitude to God and the event organisers.
He also extended his heartfelt thanks to the dedicated management and staff members of Alpha Beta and emphasised the incredible teamwork that had elevated the institution to its current stature of excellence.
He said Alpha Beta Education Centres, a beacon of educational quality in Ghana, was founded in 1988.
Starting as a pre-school, he said the institution's growth was marked by the addition of primary and junior high school (JHS) departments.
“In 2004, Alpha Beta Christian College was established, offering students the opportunity to continue their secondary education with the institution.
The commitment to excellence and holistic development has remained unwavering throughout the journey,” he added.
Rev. Adjepong said the school offered the Pearson Edexcel iPrimary programme for its primary pupils and the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) programme from Form 1 to Upper Sixth.
He said Alpha Beta Education Centres' unwavering commitment to excellence, holistic education and innovative initiatives such as its flagship Entrepreneurial Leadership Curriculum and STEM35 Legacy Project, continued to make it a beacon of educational excellence in Ghana, nurturing young leaders and inspiring them to reach for the stars.
Earlier, the Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, in his keynote address called on business leaders in the country to collaborate with the government towards achieving the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
The Vice-President said business leaders must play a pivotal role because of the private sector's role in fostering innovation, job creation and driving economic growth.
"According to the United Nations Global Compact, the private sector accounts for 60 per cent of the world's GDP, 90 per cent of employment and 80 per cent of capital flows globally; thus, the private sector's role in the promotion of sustainable development and achieving the SDGs cannot be underestimated," Dr Bawumia said.
