-Receive LD25, 000 & Scholarships
Students of Twah River District in Nimba County under the banner ‘Twah River University Students Association (TRUSA), University of Liberia chapter have received LD25, 000 plus four scholarships from a concern citizen of the district.

According to the students, since the pronouncement for the increment in the tuition fees at the state-run University of Liberia, they have been in complete ‘dilemma’ as to how they would get money to pay their tuition as students who have traveled from such distance just to acquire higher education.

Making the donation of LD25,000 along with four scholarships, Sackie Johnson, a prominent citizen of Twah River District#4 in Nimba County and a representative aspirant in the forthcoming 2017 presidential and legislative elections, said he is always happy when it comes to meeting the needs of the needy.

Johnson commended his movement, Friends of Sackie Johnson, for always identifying people that are in need and helping to address those needs in a timely manner.

“If you building a nation with skyscrapers and people are not being educated, that nation will not go forward. The people will have different minds in doing things, but if you build the minds of the human, I think the nation will be guaranteed in building,” he said.

Speaking further, Johnson promised to always identify with the students community and those in needs from the district taking into consideration the distances they have covered to be in Monrovia and other areas.

“We have come from a very far distance which is from Twah River Dsitrict#4, Nimba County. There are lots of basic social services that we don’t have now in our district and students from the district are passing from place to place looking for needs when it comes to their education. We will not sit back to disappoint them. We have started this since 2010 helping with the little we have. For me, I don’t promise this is why I have always been with them. We are not limited to helping, where we cannot reach, we will negotiate with others to see the need and help,” he added.

Receiving the cash and scholarships, Garcious Memeih Edwards, the President of TRUSA recounted the humanitarian nature of Sackie Johnson and said it was just a little verbal communication that moved Johnson to assist them as someone who believes in the human capacity building.

“This is the person we want in our district. The students’ community will always be with you Mr. Sackie. This should not be the end and this is the first of its kind for us students of Twah River district for an individual to help us like this,” he said.

For his part, the Secretary General of TRUSA, Dehmieson Berh said he has been receiving help from Sackie Johnson personally, but his prompt response to the plights of the students will go a long way.

“Because of the limited scholarship schemes for NUSA students, we decided to call on Johnson for assistance. We say thank you and this should not be the end. You have always been with us as concerned citizen of our district,” he noted.

“With 150 students across the country, Twah River District Students Association currently has an estimated 97 students at the University of Liberia.
