The Prempeh College Endowment Fund – Thank You

Category:Alumni Highlights

The PEF leadership and organizers would like to express our sincere gratitude to all volunteers, Prempeh College students who came all the way from Kumasi, their tutors who accompanied them, invited guests, themed speakers, VIPs, parliamentary delegation, charitable donors and all participants for a successful launch of the Endowment Fund. We thank Snr. Kwaku Sintim-Misa for hosting the event and Snr. Kwadwo for Chairing it. Gratifyingly, it was extremely heart-warming to have Snr. Sarpong from the 1949 pioneer group show up to grace the occasion with his presence. That’s what being an Amanfoo is all about! We were very honored with that show of support. Once again, a big “Thank you” to all for making this a successful event in celebration of our 70th anniversary milestone.

Now that the launch is behind us, the real work begins. We’ve only taken a baby step, although a big one. Now, let’s all get on-board and make this endeavor the envy of all schools. We are Amanfoo! Supremely, “Primus Inter Pares”.

If you’d like to participate in PEF activities in any capacity please send an email to directors@prempeh.com. Amanfoo forever!

Floreat Prempeh College!

Prempeh Endowment Fund

SEP 14, 2018 —

The Prempeh Endowment Fund (PEF) wants to thank every Amanfoo and non-Amanfoo sympathizers who took the time to sign the petition (https://chn.ge/2wXwvoX) against the Board of Governors for selling the school’s land. Over 500 Amanfoo signed the petition that went directly to the Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Prempeh among others. That, and several protests from other stakeholders, made our voices heard loudly and clearly on this matter.

We are pleased that the minister has heard our plea and has taken the following decisions:

  1. Ordered a halt to all illegal construction on school lands including the demolition of existing structures
  2. Disbanded the school board which had no authority to approve such sales
  3. Ordered Ghana Education Service (GES) to look into the role of the headmaster in this affair
  4. Ordered the formation of an interim management committee to oversee the school during the transition period

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of Amanfoo coming together and organizing under one true global agenda with the school at the heart of it in order to safeguard and protect the school’s interests and work going forward. The current engagement and participation by Amanfoo in contributing their voices to prevent the sale of school lands should serve as a cautionary note for lack of engagement and apathy with respect to school matters.

In that spirit, we are launching the Alumni Selection Committee (ASC) which we will be the representative body for all alumni globally to help drive a new level of global engagement and representation of every graduating year group. Please go to www.prempeh.com to register and read more about the ASC. You may also send an e-mail to directors@prempeh.com for information on how to participate in the ASC.

Category:Class Notes,Donor Stories

Giving back is the responsibility of all those who are fortunate to be able to assist others.  Giving back to me is a way of saying thank you for the countless blessings that I have benefited from society to flourish.  The willingness to voluntarily give back to society is commendable.  It demonstrates ones’ sophistication and maturity in accepting responsibility to advance their communities and society at large.

Albert Banahene – Making a Difference

Category:Class Notes,Donor Stories

This is a step towards giving back to my Alma Mater.

There is no institution that has molded some of us better than Prempeh did. SUBAN ne Nindeɛ.  Indeed, a profound motto that always rings in my mind.  We were privileged to have had opportunities for good academics and extracurricular activities.  I miss the cadet corps, athletics, and all the social clubs.
