The event was also characterized by the sharing of experiences by the C3 scholarship beneficiaries following their respective graduation from universities and colleges in the country under the C3 sponsorship.

At the program which was also centered on honoring, gowning, and presentation of a certificate of honor alongside a painting (portrait) of the Montanas, the C3 scholars extolled their sponsors for the continuous assistance being rendered them which, according to the scholars, has greatly transformed their lives in society as they are ready to give back to the county based on the MOU entered with the C3.

At the same time, three of the C3 scholars from the Smythe Institute of Management and Technology yet to be placed on the job as in the case of their colleagues from other higher learning institutions, appealed to the organization to exert efforts for their placement on the job through the Ministry of Health.

The C3 scholars’ appeal to Dr. Montana was uttered by Madam Hawa Kromah, who spoke on their behalf in special remarks at which time the beneficiaries praised their sponsor through the organization for the humanitarian gesture which, to date, has and continues to impart the lives of Cape Mountainians and residents in the county.

On the appeal from some scholars not yet placed on the job market, Dr. Montana said their concerns were genuine but voiced that C3 has been conferring with authorities of the Ministries of Health and Education to begin to honor the MOU it has entered with the two government ministries by placing the scholarship beneficiaries on the job in keeping with the MOU signed over the years.

Meanwhile, Cross Cultural Care Liberia Country Director, Mr. Harris Kanneh, used the occasion to reveal that C3 has funded and continues to fund small projects at the St. Timothy Government Hospital in Grand Cape Mounty County.

He said from 2017, the organization began supporting secondary education in Robertsport by funding housing options for Peace Corps and ECOWAS volunteer teachers assigned to the Robertsport High School.

Accordingly, the C3 has also established the Cape Mount County Scholarship program which has trained over 20 healthcare technicians at various universities in Liberia intended to be deployed in the health system of the county.

To date, Kanneh voiced C3 is funding 10 high school teachers with Bachelor’s Degrees to teach at the Episcopal Elementary, Jr. and Senior High School in Robertsport as the initiative aims to improve the academic standard of the institution and to adequately prepare the students to pass the West Africa Senior Student Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) that which will enable the students to enter higher institutions of learning to pursue career studies.
