Business professionals, academics and politicians gathered together on the 17th March to pay tribute to ICM students from Freetown and Bo and to new Honorary Fellows of the Institute.
The graduation ceremony held at the British Council, Freetown was awash with speeches from many dignitaries including the Minister of Education, the Mayor of Freetown and the former Lord Chief Justice.
Participants were clearly inspired by the dignitaries’ words of encouragement, by their support for education and their backing of ICM programmes. A surprise was also on hand when a scholarship was presented to DJ Base in person, a man whose voice is known across Sierra Leone.
In addition to the graduation awards, Honorary Fellowships were awarded to the following people by ICM’s Director of External Relations, Mr. Chris Curran, in recognition of their outstanding contributions to education and social and economic development in Sierra Leone.
