Edward Elorm Gbanaglo, a graduate of the Presbyterian Boys' Secondary School (PRESEC), who scored six A1s and two B2s, has received GH¢52,000 in scholarship money.
18-year-old Elorm Gbanaglo who dreams of becoming a medical doctor nearly had his aspirations dashed because of financial constraints.
The brilliant teenager graduated from PRESEC, Legon, with six A1s and two B2s, and gained admission into the University of Health and Allied Sciences in Ho in the Volta Region but only managed to pay his admission fees with help from family friends.
However, Elorm Gbanaglo, who defied all odds to make excellent grades, feared he might not be able to complete the programme because of the lack of sustained flow of funds.
He visited the offices of the Daily Graphic to appeal for support to enable him to realise his dream of becoming a medical doctor.
Through a Daily Graphic publication on February 23, the MD of Abyak Pharma LTD, Thomas Mensah, who initially donated GH¢2,000 towards the education of Elorm, later decided to take up the full tuition fee of the remaining five years by paying a total amount of GH¢50,000 bringing his contribution to GH¢52,000.
Elorm has two other siblings with the same ordeal. You can send your donations to the Graphic Needy Fund Momo Account 0245311063. Remember to use ELORM as a reference.
