The Webmaster of the INQUIRER Newspaper, Mr. Varney K. Sirleaf, yesterday earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the African Methodist Episcopal Zion University (AMEZU).
Mr. Sirleaf was part of hundreds of graduates who walked through the walls of the AMEZU yesterday. He started his college education in 2009-2010 academic sojourn at AMEZU where he read Accounting Major and minor in Public Administration.
Varney was recruited as staff of the INQUIRER in 2004 from the paper’s vacation school program initiated by the Managing Editor, Mr. Philip N. Wesseh where he rose from ‘Vacation Job’ to full employee after climbing the ladder and became the paper’s Webmaster.
Mr. Sirleaf has extended his thanks and appreciation to the Management of the paper for affording him the space and opportunity to further his education.
He said Management and all of the staff of the paper have been very supportive to his quest for higher education, most especially the Managing Editor, Mr. Wesseh.
“I have found a ‘Father’ in him; sometimes he chastised me only to do the right thing and to grow being respectful and dedicated to duty as an employee,” he said.
He further stated that the INQUIRER’s Vacation program had helped to academically and morally breed lots of qualified and competent young people in the country who are meaningfully contributing to the growth and development of Liberia.
He then called on other abled Liberians to join Mr. Philip N. Wesseh to build the human resource of Liberia, as it is said, “It is better to teach a man how to fish than to give fish every day”.
He also called on the Management of the paper to continue Vacation Program to help empower more people for a better Liberia in the future.
He concluded by giving thanks and praises to God Almighty for giving him the strength, wisdom and knowledge through his study at the university.
Meanwhile, Mr. Sirleaf will be honored by the Management of The INQUIRER today at the institution office on Gurley, the Managing Editor, Philip N. Wesseh has disclosed.
