An Electrical and Electronic Engineering student of the Sunyani Technical University, Elijah Adraku-Tawia, has been adjudged the Overall Best Student at the 14th Congregation of the institution.

Mr Adraku-Tawia is the latest recipient of Kasapreko Student Leadership Awards. He received a laptop, a commemorative plaque, a cash prize of GH¢2,000 and a National Service opportunity with Kasapreko Company Limited (KCL).

The "Student Leadership Awards" scheme, instituted by one of Ghana's leading beverage manufacturers, aims at strengthening industry and academic collaboration, thus offering students a practical platform through which they can apply skills acquired.

Addressing the congregation, Mr Adraku-Tawia lauded Kasapreko for their package which he said would be an inspiration for him as he aspired to greater heights.

Kind gesture

"I want to thank Kasapreko for their kind gesture and this package, which will inspire me as I strive to achieve excellence. I am hopeful of making the necessary gains as I step out into the world of work and contribute my quota to the development of Ghana," he said.

The Human Resources Manager at Kasapreko Company Limited, Solomon Owusu Bonnah, said the scheme formed part of its corporate social responsibility and the quest to honour thriving students in the fields of Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.

The Dean of the Faculty of Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of the University, Dr Samuel Wiafe, said he was grateful to KCL for setting up the awards scheme to motivate students.

KCL

Dr Wiafe appealed to KCL to support the institution of a graduate school.

“I want to thank Kasapreko for this laudable initiative but I will entreat them to support the establishment of a graduate school that has been planned,” he said.

He added: "I would also urge Adraku-Tawia to make good use of this opportunity offered by Kasapreko and make the necessary impact in the field of engineering.”

KCL was established in 1989 by Dr Kwabena Adjei to provide quality drinks at affordable prices for all Ghanaians.

The company has been certified by the International Organisation for Standardisation.
