MARSHALLS STUDENTS PREPARE FOR HISTORIC GRADUATION

Date: 05/03/2017

Since its inception in September 2013, Marshalls College is expected to graduate for the first time about 150 students next year 2018. Ahead of this approaching historic event, the graduating classes including 35 foreign students were honoured for their outstanding accomplishments in academics, sports and leadership at the Marshalls Strategic Lakefront Rendezvous held in Akosombo on the 11th of February 2017.

The Rendezvous is a collaborative effort of Marshalls and the Marshalls Association of Students’ Affairs [MASA]. It is held once every academic year to review academic performances and to re-orient the Marshalls community to the college’s culture and vision. This year’s event was on the theme Academic Excellence and Value Creation, and was centred on the attainment of academic distinctions and career goals especially for the Final Year class.

President of Marshalls, Prof. Benony Kortatsi, read out the guidelines for graduation before elaborating on issues relating to National Service [especially for foreign students] and satisfaction of the requirements for graduation. He also answered questions from the students on Project Management, Disqualification Technicalities and their consequences. Prof Kortatsi advised the students to dedicate themselves to passing out successfully and not to undo all the years of hard work. “Attend to every little instruction, be honest to yourself and in your work and push yourself hard. Now is the time to set up yourself for the glory that is set before you, and to make us all proud.

Be diligent. Do not allow negligence to undo all the hard work over the years”, he stated.
Vice President, Mr. Mike K. Arthur, and Ms. Sarah Opoku, Quality Assurance Officer at Marshalls, presented the Performance Evaluation chart. As is the custom at Marshalls, during the Rendezvous, the academic performance of the past year is reviewed and analysed. Students’ and instructors’ performances are evaluated in retrospect in order to identify weaknesses and find solutions.
Mr. Arthur noted a sharp improvement in academic performances but urged the students to commit even more resources and effort in order to do even better. Mr Arthur said, “I believe we have done better compared to last year.

Make no mistake these are standards that other places may be proud of, but not here. All of us, whether lecturers or students must commit even more resources and effort, in order to attain the Marshalls standard. As you can see, we are not far off, so let’s all roll up our sleeves again and do even better than we have done in the past. To the students especially, I charge you to achieve the excellence that will make you point to this institution in some years’ time, and be proud of.”
Group President of Meridian-Marshalls Holdings, Dr. Tetteh Nettey, praised the academic ethics of the students but noted that graduating with excellence was still the most important factor. He therefore urged the students urged the students to remain focused on their on their study and on ways of exploiting to advantage the knowledge they have acquired over the years in their future place of work.

Dr. Nettey is also the immediate past president of Marshalls and recounted how far the college had come since its inception in September, 2013. “All of you here need to be saluted for your unwavering faith. There were storms, there were handicaps and there were questions. Not that they have all gone away but we can now look at the rewards of our faith. As we can all see, the Akosombo campus is ongoing. In Academics, Innovation and Sports we have also performed exceptionally for a budding institution. These successes, in these rather few years, could not have been possible without all of you”, Dr Nettey remarked to loud cheers and applause.

As earlier mentioned, this year’s batch of Marshalls’ final year students will historically become the institution’s first graduating class. The graduating class consists of members of the various schools under Marshalls- the School of Arts and Social Sciences, School of Technology, the Marshalls / J.S. Addo Business school, and the School of Modern Languages.
