Students Applaud Alex Cummings – For His Exceptional Vision Towards Vibrant Future

MONROVIA – Students of the Light Academy Model School System in Marshall, Margibi County, have lauded the Standard Bearer of the Collaborating Political Parties (CPP), Alexander B. Cummings, for his exceptional vision engendering a vibrant future for the young people of Liberia. The students especially praised Mr. Cummings for the attainment of quality education and pledged to support him in all endeavors.

The students, along with the school authorities, said they have followed with keen interest Mr. Cummings’ pronouncements and strong commitment to improve the quality of education which, they said, is in line with their school’s objectives. 

Established in 2013 by Rev. Tailey Garley, the Light Academy Model School System has an enrollment of 930 students and is also offering free vocational education to senior high school students as well as  has been granted permission by the National Commission for Higher Education (NCHE) to operate at the college level.

The CPP Standard Bearer said he was inspired by the deportment and smartness of students of the Light Academy, and their stride towards quality education at the institution. He thanked the school authorities and students for the invitation extended to him to interact with them.

Cummings complimented the students’ quest for knowledge, which he said is critical to the upbringing of young people as future leaders.

The CPP Standard Bearer reaffirmed his commitment upon his election as Liberia’s next President, to the attainment of quality education in schools nationwide.

He said a CPP Government will commit to ensuring professionally trained teachers, with better salaries and incentives that will attract qualified and competent Liberians into the educational system of Liberia.

Cummings, also the political leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), averred that just as women are considered Liberia’s backbone and foundation, so are young people considered the future leaders, deserving of quality education to best prepare them.

He stressed the dire need for students to seriously consider the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math courses. He informed the audience that the CPP will pursue a two-track education system with emphasis on attaining university degrees or vocational certifications.

The CPP Standard Bearer said the attainment of quality education would also require enforcement of other basic standards including the quality of educational materials and classroom sizes conducive for learning.

Cummings stressed that with the look of things, Liberia is proceeding in the wrong direction, requiring all Liberians of voting age to fully participate in the pending October 10 general and presidential elections.

He warned that no amount of wishful thinking or talking will change Liberia, but rather through hard work, sacrifice and breaking away from the age-old ways of doing things.
