MONROVIA – As a testimony of his ardent support to the education sector, President George Manneh Weah yesterday, Thursday, January 26, 2023 once again demonstrated his commitment when he dedicated a modern public school in King Gray, Paynesville City, Montserrado County, which was constructed on his order after seeing the hitherto deplorable structure that was not fit for a conducive learning environment.
The newly constructed school consists of eight classes, twelve-compartment latrines, and a principal office. It also contains a spacious office for the Registrar, a teacher lounge, two teacher washing rooms. Each of the classes contains a front porch. The school will be a relief to over 2,000 students within Paynesville and its surroundings who are expected to enroll at the school, which runs morning, afternoon, and evening sessions.

Speaking to reporters minutes after cutting the ribbon, President Weah said he was happy to dedicate the new school facility, terming it fulfillment of another promise.
He said the dedication of the school is the government’s way of promoting the education sector and also enhancing students’ quest for education. The President opined that the new school will give the students a huge urge and impetus to return to school and continue their learning process.
“We came here last year and saw the need to do something because the initial structure was dilapidated,” the President said in remarks before the dedication. “I’m very glad that we are doing our best to fulfill and deliver on promises made to our people.”
The President reiterated his government’s commitment to progressively delivering on every promise made to the people of Liberia.
“We have a long list of projects, and we are doing everything to touch everywhere possible,” he stressed.
The Liberian Leader urged the community and school administration to ensure good maintenance of the facility while also expressing disappointment over the poor and unkempt manner in which most recently constructed facilities are kept.
It can be recalled that the project started on October 5, 2022, by the Liberia Agency for Community Empowerment (LACE) after the President ordered the reconstruction after seeing it in a terrible state of ruin.
Hundreds of citizens and residents, especially parents turned out amid jubilation and encomiums being poured on President Weah for being thoughtful to undertake the project and complete it in record time. They were excited that it would be a huge relief to them and their children and wards who could not afford the fees in private institutions in the area.
