The Vice Chancellor, Clifford University Owerrinta, Prof. Chimezie Omeonu and Rector, Abia State College of Health Sciences and Management Technology, Aba, Prof. Lawrence Chigbu, have charged students to collaborate with others and build a network that will aid their progress in life.

  
The duo made the call at the 2022 graduation ceremony of 85 students of Total Education Development Academy (TEDA) Eke-Owerri, Obingwa, Abia State.
  
Omeonu said the graduands would face many challenges but should remain focused on developing the mind to acquire necessary skills for success in today’s world.
  
On his part, Chigbu, who was the chairman of the occasion, urged the students to build on the solid foundation of learning at TEDA School.
   
Two other educationists, Helen Agharanya and Dr Flora Anyim also spoke on building emotional competencies and resilience as adolescents.
   
TEDA Founder, Dr Godson Dinneya, commended the outgoing students for their diligence and good results.  The West African Examinations Council named the school the best in Nigeria in 2020 based on its students’ performance in examinations.
  
TEDA emerged Best School in Junior Science at the International Olympiad Competition in 2019/2020. Its students placed first, third, fourth, fifth and seventh out of the best ten.
 
It also won overall first and third positions in junior sciences and Best Girl in Junior Sciences. The Abia State Ministry of Education named TEDA best government-approved Junior Secondary School for 2020/2021 and second position among government-approved Senior Secondary Schools in the state.
