A symbolic check of US$4,000.00 was on Tuesday, April 19, 2017 presented to the management team of the More Than Me Academy (MTMA) on Ashmun Street, Monrovia by the Liberian Association of Greater Houston (LAGH) in the United States.

Making the presentation to the administration of the school, Madam Effua McGowan a representative said the cash donation came from Liberians in the United States, particularly in Houston who saw the need to contribute financially to the work of More Than Me in molding the minds of Liberia’s future leaders.

Madam McGowan said Liberians in the diaspora were excited for the level of contributions this American institution is making in Liberia by impacting sound education in the minds of Liberia’s youthful population, especially the girls children.

She lauded the efforts of the founder of the institution, Ms. Katie Meyler who she noted saw a positive reason for the establishment of this very unique and important institution; catering to the girls children of Liberia.

Madam McGowan speaking to the students of the Academy, said it was very important for them to take their lessons seriously if they are to serve as future leaders of Liberia, noting, “What is in your head no one can take it from you,” noting further, “I am indeed overwhelmed for the level of support being provided by More Than Me Academy, and those Liberian instructors who are selflessly impacting knowledge in your minds,” She told the students.

Speaking on behalf of the Founder of the institution, the Chief Academic Officer of the More Than Me Academy, Madam Alexandra Fallon thanked members and the leadership of LAGH for its support towards the education of the Liberian children, and promised that the amount presented to the institution will be used for its intended purpose.

For her part, the Principal of the institution, Ms. Oludrey Briggs expressed thanks and appreciation to LAGH for the cash donation to her school, and further said, the selection of her institution for the donation was amongst 200 other organizations who were vented for this donation, noting, “As God could have it, we were opportune to have been selected. We are grateful to this organization,” Ms. Briggs said.

More Than Me Academy (MTMA) is a leader in education in Liberia and a vocal advocate for girls’ empowerment, and is a tuition-free K-6 girls school providing high quality education and holistic services like healthcare, family planning, psychosocial support, and a feeding program for the most vulnerable girls in Monrovia.
