The Member of Parliament (MP) for Bosomtwe in the Ashanti Region, Dr Yaw Adutwum, has set up a 10 year vision to ensure that the Bosomtwe area produces at least 100 engineers in the next 10 years.
As part of that he has been offering scholarships to brilliant students from the area for them to pursue high level education at the tertiary level.
On Monday morning, be bid farewell to 30 students from the Bosomtwe who have gained admission at the University of Mines and Technology (UMAT) at Tarkwa to pursue various courses in Engineering.
Dr Adutwum is fully funding the education of the students.
He posed and took pictures with the students who were about boarding a bus to the Tarkwa campus of UMAT in the Western Region.
The excitement on the faces of the students and that of the parents who had assembled in front of Dr Adutwum’s constituency office building “was palpable,” Dr Adutwum stated in a post on social media.
“Fees paid, accommodation provided and a bus ready to convey them to Tarkwa, I encouraged them to aim high, study hard, read wide and pursue success,” the former Deputy Minister of Education in President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s first term in office wrote.
“My vision of ensuring that Bosomtwe gets 100 engineers within the next ten years is on course,” he added.
