Miss Abigail Sedinam Aborgah has been adjudged the overall best graduating College of Education Studies student at the Second to Sixth Sessions of the 51st Congregation currently ongoing at the University of Cape Coast (UCC).
The former student of St Martins Secondary School in the Eastern Region achieved this feat with a Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA) of 3.859. This is the first time a female student from the College of Education Studies has won this coveted award.
It is worthwhile to mention that Miss Aborgah was the overall best student at St. Martin’s Senior High School in the 2013 year batch. Not surprisingly, she has replicated the feat in UCC .
Speaking at the event, Provost of the College, Prof. Eric Magnus Wilmont, stated that this was the first time in the history of the College that a female student has won the award with such a high CGPA.
He urged society to encourage female child education since it was obvious that both genders could be of relevance to the society and the nation at large with the right education and training.
Miss Aborgah said she was able to attain this height by the grace of God and extensive hard work. She went on to dedicate her award to her family.
