Liberia: Dillon Hits Early Homerun -Gets Hats-Off From Strayer University

The academic authority of the prestigious Strayer University in the United States has spotted useful potentials in Abraham Darius Dillon and minced in no words in letting him savor his flowers.

"Congratulations.  Your excellent grades during Fall Quarter 2012 places you on the Honor Roll. On behalf of Strayer University, I congratulate you on your scholarly achievement and offer you encouragement in your future educational endeavors," the SU said in a communication to Mr. Dillon dated December 27, 2012.

The former kingmaker in Liberian politics earned the "scholarly achievement" after his first semester at the university, which ended in December.

In a communication to this paper, Mr. Dillon vowed to transform the university's "encouragement" into another concrete achievement in the second semester that began on January 7 this year.

"This is NOT for self-fame, but to encourage others who are still either complacent or discouraged about seeking higher education. All they need do is to brace themselves for such worthy endeavor. 'The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step'," he said in the communication.

Meanwhile Mr. Dillon said not only is he aiming to impress the academic authority of SU but that he would also endeavor to make the 'President's List'.

Mr. Dillon is studying in the US on a private scholarship.
