Mr. Andrew Ahoto, the Chairman of the School in his speech called upon the students to always keep their dreams alive by making use of their latent talents. Through his usual manner of encouraging through heart touching anecdotes and examples, he exhorted the outgoing students to make the best possible use of the gift of talents and skills that God has bestowed upon them.
