COMMUNITY GETS EUNISELL 2015 SCHOLARSHIP
Two students from Nkpogwu community in Port Harcourt council area of Rivers state have been awarded a full tuition scholarship by Eunisell Chemicals, a leading African specialty fluids management company.
The beneficiaries, Vincent Nbinye and Victoria Dede, a Junior Secondary School (JSS) One student of Stella Maris College, Port Harcourt and 100 level student of the University of Port Harcourt respectively, will enjoy a full tuition scholarship throughout their stay in school.
Addressing newsmen at the award presentation, the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Mr Ken Amadi, stated that, “Since we began our operations almost two decades ago, we have continued to ensure that the impact of our success as a Nigerian company is felt right within the grassroots and communities where we operate and this year is no exception.
We have chosen to support two students this year with the requisite education; knowledge and skills that will enable them perform efficiently and effectively as future leaders. It is my belief that this scholarship will have a positive impact on the education and career milestones of these students, their immediate community and the country at large.”
Amadi also advised the students to take their education seriously, as this was the most important legacy any one can give a child. In his words, “I urge both of you to take your studies very seriously, there are a lot of vices in the community these days, but I want you to focus on your education and stay away from every bad behaviour…” he concluded.
Dede in her remarks said the award was a dream comes true. “I was very excited when I was told I had been selected for the 2015 scholarship by Eunisell. I have heard about some students who have benefited from such scholarships even from other companies before, but this is my first time of getting a scholarship and I feel very good about this.
A community leader, Elder Barry Iwezor said his community will continue to support the operations of Eunisell, saying the award was “the first of such gesture by any company to our community.
