The management of Topfaith International Secondary School Mkpatak, in Akwa Ibom State has presented a cash prize of $1000 to sixteen-year-old Master Valour Mbre-Inyang, for his brilliant performance in the 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
Mbre-Inyang harvested all the nine A1’s in the WAESSC result, a feat that is unparallel since the inception of the institution 20 years ago.
The chairman, Board of Governors of the institution, Dr. Emmanuel Abraham, while presenting the prize in a ceremony on Monday in the school, lauded the awardee for making the school proud.
He explained that the prize of $1000 was instituted by the board of governors for any student who could make unparallel A1 in the subjects she or he enroll in WASSCE, adding that the aim was to encourage the students to surpass expectations in their WASSCE.
He said “Over the years, a lot of Topfaith students came quite close to clinching the award, scoring 8 A1’s, but falling short of one to get the prize.”
He saluted Mbre-Inyang for his achievements in making all A-stars (A*s) in the five subjects he sat in Cambridge GCE, 343 out of 400 points in JAMB-UTME, 1480 out of 1600 points in Scholastic Aptitude Test as well as 8 out of 9 points in International English Language Test System.
