Total recognises exceptional performers
The awarding ceremony took place on Thursday 11, 2019 at the University Campus ODL Building main auditorium.
Speaking during the ceremony, The Polytechnic Principal, Professor Grant Kululanga hailed the organisation for its passion in supporting education sector in Malawi.
“These awards are important to the Polytechnic community as they mark incentive approach in promoting higher education in Malawi. Through the awards, we are helped to impart our students with knowledge and skills that are relevant to the industry,” Kululanga explained.
Kululanga further urged awardees to keep on working hard and to have an integrity wherever they will get employed.
“It is not about getting good grades, but what matters in the industry is integrity. You can have nice grades at the end of your final year but if you are lacking integrity then you cannot excel,” he advised.
The Total Malawi Limited Managing Director, Salamata Ball said the event was part of their corporate social responsibility and all initiatives they do in promoting education in Malawi.
“Total Malawi is very delighted to express its gratitude towards the best outstanding students at the polytechnic through recognition. I hope this award will help awardees to excel in their studies as they are finishing and motivating others to work hard so that one day they can get recognised based on their achievement,” Ball said.
A representative to the awardees, final year student of Accountancy, Mary Chisasa thanked the Polytechnic management and Total Malawi for recognition as it will fuel them to keep on working hard in everything they do.
The twenty awardees received a cheque of K324,000 each and it was not first time when the organisation awarded best outstanding students at the institution.
