In the Spirit of Altruism and Gratitude

Recipients, benefactors and administrators during the Thanksgiving event

To show deep gratitude and appreciation to altruistic alumni and sponsors, the college held a thanksgiving celebration on November 9 at CKS College Main Auditorium where administrators, benefactors, and scholars gathered for the eventful occasion in which scholarship recipients were given an opportunity to acknowledge the generosity of their educative benefactors.

Highlights of the event include the giving of thank-you letters of scholars to sponsors who charitably support the foremost aim of the institution—to provide quality education for the future leaders of the world across all fields. Furthermore, the program also gave students photo opportunities with the sponsors who are currently supporting over 240 scholars.

Concluding the program, Mr. Jose Averia, vice-chairman of the Board of Trustees, gave an encouraging speech that inspired the students to excel academically amidst difficulties and challenges so that in turn, they will be able to help students in need of scholarship in the future.
