The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) of Regent University College of Science and Technology (Regent-Ghana) has won the Youth Excellence Award as the best SRC of the year 2011. Regent-Ghana SRC topped the chart of quality leadership among all the student leaderships that were nominated to compete for the prestigious award.
Per this nomination, the Regent-Ghana SRC has become the best student leadership in all the universities in Ghana for the 2011/12 academic year.
This prestigious award will be conferred on the institution at a ceremony to be held at the College of Physicians and Surgeons in Accra, on Friday, March 23, at 6pm. The programme is under the guest speakership of H.E William Billy Williams (the Australian High Commissioner to Ghana), under the theme, “Inspiring Excellence among Young People.”
The Regent-Ghana SRC came first after a national survey conducted by Waves International, a youth-oriented non-profit organisation with the vision of empowering young people through effective mentoring to ascertain the impact of quality students’ leadership among the student audiences of the respective universities.
Waves International is the only Ghanaian youth organisation to have been recognised by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll of England and former President Nelson Mandela of South Africa during their respective birthdays for its initiative in helping young people to emulate good examples through mentoring.
The Speaker (SRC President), Rt. Hon. G.O Akomeah, and his team are delighted at this recognition and the positive impact it has made on the entire Regent-Ghana community.
