A female business student of the University of Ghana Business School, Akora Claire Forson, emerged as the Overall Best Student for the 2020 academic year.
Forson made history as the 2020 valedictorian during the eighth session of the November/December congregation ceremonies at the University of Ghana.
Delivering her valedictorian speech, Forson commended the university authorities for exposing students to situations that helped them to build capacities that would anchor them through life.
''Over our four-year period, our stay in the business school was filled with many opportunities to develop our innate talents. We participated in group works where some discovered leadership skills and others learned teamwork.''
Forson recalled the adversities they faced as students, learning and graduating at a time when the world is dealing with a pandemic.
''We were also exposed to many pressurising situations as in cases when we had project works to complete and the day of submission was right around the corner ... but we learned not to be complacent in all these,'' she said.
Forson indicated that though business students of the 2020-year badge are graduating in a time of increased uncertainties and challenges, opportunities for students to succeed abound.
''In a time when the pandemic has threatened businesses and economies, we are called to innovate. Everyone says we are the future. I believe our future begins right now.
Forson urged her colleagues to take the skills and attitudes instilled in them by the University of Ghana and leave their footprint in society.
