The management of the National Social Security and Welfare Corporation (NASSCORP) recently donated hundreds of NASSCORP inscribed notebooks to students attending several public schools in and around Monrovia.
The donation was part of the corporation's corporate social responsibility program to identify with educational institutions. The exercise is also part of efforts the NASSCORP management has embarked on to buttress the national government's education reform program.
NASSCORP's Public Relations Coordinator Cora E. Taylor Ferguson, who presented the items to the students on behalf of Director General Dewitt vonBallmoos, informed the audience that the entity saw the need to identify with the students, whose parents want to see them enrolled during this academic semester.

Mrs. Ferguson said the goodwill gesture was intended to keep students abreast of NASSCORP's activities in covering its beneficiaries.
She assured the students of the corporation's preparedness to provide additional assistance to the student community in the not too distant future as part of its commitment to improve the country's human resource development program, especially for students.
In response, an administrator of the Tubman High School, Joan Yole Gono, expressed gratitude to the NASSCORP management for The gesture. Ms Gono said she was happy with the corporation's largesse, which she described as an act of God, and commended the management of NASSCORP for its efforts to ensure that students stay in school and comfortably acquire their education.

Institutions that benefited from the NASSCORP assistance were William V.S. Tubman High School, Boatswain Junior High School, Sarah Barclay High School, Latter Rain Academy, Pamela Kay Senior High School, Paynesville Community Junior and Senior High Schools and the Goodridge High School.
Meanwhile, the principal of Latter Rain School, Ms. Belinda J. Cheeks, who also joined the students in appreciating NASSCORP, called on other entities to emulate the corporation's example.
