“MARSHALLS HOLDS THE KEY TO A MILLION DESTINIES”- STANFORD SEED’S EMMANUEL KITCHER DECLARES
The Regional Director for West Africa for Stanford Seed, Mr. Emmanuel Kitcher, has heaped praises on Marshalls for their commitment to advancing education in West Africa. He revealed his admiration for Meridan-Marshalls Holdings’ investment in teaching and learning, predicting that Marshalls will in a few years rise to become a regional leader in education.
Mr. Emmanuel Kitcher was speaking at the Capacity Building Workshop, a two-day training exercise hosted by Stanford Seed for faculty members of Marshalls. The Workshop was held to improve the instructional and assessment competencies of the faculty members. Marshalls also has a custom of organizing workshops for the faculty before the commencement of every academic year, in order to reorient lecturers in particular the newly appointed ones, to the Marshalls vision. This year, Stanford Seed hosted the workshop as part of their commitment to Marshalls through the Stanford Seed Transformation Programme on which Marshalls is enrolled.
In his speech as Keynote speaker, Mr. Kitcher addressed the workshop participants on the Stanford Seed Transformation Programme and the specifics of the workshop. He revealed that Stanford Seed, through its flagship Seed Transformation programme was committed to assisting Marshalls transform the educational landscape in West Africa by making readily available the same world class faculties, facilitators and coaching that is responsible for an estimated three trillion dollars [US$3,000,000,000,000] of the global industrial economy.
He praised the founder of the Meridian-Marshalls Holdings Dr. Tetteh Nettey for his leadership of the institution thus far and urged other stakeholders of the Marshalls and urged other stakeholders of the Marshalls community especially the lecturers to commit fully to the Marshalls vision, especially the lecturers. Commenting on Marshalls’ mission to impart the next generation of leaders by empowering them to respond to the current and future needs of society, Mr. Kitcher remarked, “This is feasible. I am sure if I asked you all to look into your palms you’d say there’s nothing there in my palm. But I see something there in your palm- the futures and destinies of millions of people in the sub-region whose lifestyle and future can be redefined and reshaped by institutions and organizations like Meridian-Marshalls.”
Six months ago, Marshalls enrolled onto the Stanford Seed Transformation Programme. The move is geared towards equipping the Marshalls community with the resources necessary for providing world class teaching and learning, in line with the institution’s goal of achieving Ivy League status. Already Marshalls has established a five-storey modern educational facility, introduced several learning resources and adopted the UNESCO standards of teaching and learning within the last year.
The Transformation Programme is another of Marshalls’ investments as it follows a clearly-defined blueprint in its quest to become a leader in academia and innovation within the West African sub-region in the shortest possible time.
