88 Graduates Urged to Seek Virtue for Productive Future

first_imgLGM Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel J. Giddings addressing graduates, parents and others at the Harriette E. Bailey Methodist SchoolThe eighty-eight (88) graduates of the Harriette E. Bailey Memorial United Methodist School have been urged to seek the virtue of excellence for a productive future. Rev. Emmanuel J. Giddings, chief executive officer of the Liberia-Ghana Mission, gave the admonition on Thursday, August 3, at the fourth commencement convocation held at the HEBMUMS Auditorium in Duahzon Community, Margibi County.Rev. Giddings told the graduates that they have taken the first step in their quest for education, and that there are huge challenges that could either serve as barriers for their elevation to another level in pursuit of higher education, or as a motivation to persevere. He, however, frowned on indecent dress codes on the part of some of the graduates and urged them to be what they are and not someone else as they pursue their educational goals. “I want to encourage you to consider yourselves as the future generation of Liberians that are expected to steer the affairs of the nation,” Rev. Giddings stressed.He further reminded the graduates that although Liberia is 170 years old as a nation, she is yet to be on par with the nearest countries of Ghana and Ivory Coast in socioeconomic and infrastructural developments. He urged the graduates to aim high and not be content with what he described as “good enough,” adding that there is nothing like luck in the search for solid education and building a solid foundation for the future. “Work hard and always study your lessons at a meticulous pace in order to reach the marks of excellence and good moral standards in your quest for marketable skills,” Rev. Giddings said.Rev. Giddings, meanwhile, announced a scholarship for the valedictorian, B. Felix Zeekeh, to pursue higher education at the United Methodist University, and a two-year scholarship for the salutatorian. For his part, valedictorian Zeekeh pointed out that he had a remarkable experience at HEBMUMS, working along with teachers and the administration. He urged his fellow graduates to always endure and consider themselves as people on a journey to be productive for the country.Zeekeh congratulated his colleagues for their hard academic work and expressed gratitude to their parents, sponsors, and scholarship providers for their support over the years.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Das Haus Tour

first_imgI attended an event in October called the Das Haus tour – a prefab “house” sponsored by the German Consulate General that will be roaming the country for about a year. The first stop was in Atlanta, so although I was one of the first people to see it, I don’t understand the point of the venture.Quoting the glossy brochure distributed at the event I attended, “Central to the exhibition is an integrated, fully functioning structure that applied real-world technologies and solutions that meet ultra-low energy building standards.” What I saw didn’t even come close to resembling this.The actual exhibit, on the lawn of the World of Coca Cola, an enormous, if entertaining, pseudo-museum dedicated to the biggest purveyor of sugar water on the planet, was an assembly of modified shipping containers that sort of resembled a building.Not much there, thereSeeing the exhibit in person provided me with little, if any insight into what it was intended to explain to visitors. I did get a little more information once I downloaded the technical brochure from the website. The two-pronged approach of the project is to promote energy efficient and renewable technologies to the general public. The technologies on exhibit were inspired by Germany’s entries into the 2007 and 2009 Solar Decathlon, so it bears some resemblance to those mobile home sized projects.What it didn’t appear to have was a particularly coherent message or story to tell to visitors. One section was a fully enclosed living module that resembled many uber-modern compact homes. Another section displayed various types of high efficiency walls sections with explanations of the various components. Sprinkled around were a few displays of commercial products including prefabricated wall components and solar panels which appeared to be paid advertisements from invited sponsors.I get the feeling that they had hoped to have more of these displays, but did not get the expected participation from vendors. After viewing the exhibit, few of the attendees seemed to have much of an understanding of what they had seen.The hidden valueDisregarding my disappointment with the exhibit, there were several days of presentations while it was in Atlanta. Although I was not able to attend them, they looked interesting, including one on solar-ready housing and one on barriers to clean energy market transformation.I would have liked to attend some of these talks, but I would have preferred even more to be invited to give one myself (I never said I wasn’t the jealous type).To me the whole event resembles exhibits I have seen at trade shows that are organized by foreign chambers of commerce and consulates where various vendors are invited (or coerced) to show their wares in hopes of expanding their business in the US. To me, these appear to be primarily a way to spend money to justify the various organizations existence and continued funding.Having already visited Atlanta and Houston, Das Haus is headed to Phoenix in January, San Francisco in February, then to Canada and more U.S. cities until it closes in Denver in November 2012. If anyone in Atlanta or Houston has seen it and has any thoughts to add, please share them.And for those of you who will have the pleasure of seeing Das House next year, please keep me in mind when you do.last_img read more
