UAC chief advises graduands to maintain culture of excellence, make right choices
Speaking on the topic, “Maintaining a Culture of Excellence for Future Development,” she said: “Some of the students will be admitted into universities or other institutions of higher learning, while some will get into paid employment or vocations or other sundry endeavours.
The question is: Are you prepared to take charge of your lives?
Are you ready to be accountable for your actions? Are you determined to make your life a success?
Wherever life takes you to after your graduation, the knowledge we are sharing today will stay with you through your journey in life.”
She noted that only the very bright and smart excel, get recognised and rewarded in life, adding that such people end up occupying enviable positions in reputable organisations.
Elemide told the students that competition is a fact of life they would be subjected to and they should be determined to scale all hurdles to be among the best wherever they find themselves from now.
“As you graduate today, brace yourself for even stiffer and keener competition!
You will find that in life, the bar of success is akin to that of a high jumper – the more you scale the hurdle, the more the bar is raised!
You will soon discover that price and prize go together.
You must pay a price before you get the prize; the prize is the reward for the price you have paid for your accomplishments.
Be determined and stand out,” she said.
