“The good thing is that he’s done so much for the School already. For instance, he helped the School to attain the status of a School. Through his ingenuity we have a PhD programme in the School and that is something that we can never downplay and then we also have a Centre for Communication Education and Professional Development,” she indicated.
The Vice-Dean of the SCMS, Mr. Kwesi Aggrey, who gave the purpose for the courtesy call expressed delight that one of their own had risen to that privileged position.
