During the occasion, Dr. Kibebew Kibret, Dean of the College, said, “The purpose of the award is to motivate our students (those who are receiving the award today and others who aspire to be one of the winners in the future) for better achievements.”


Dr. Kibebew added that recognizing the achievements of special students is one among the many efforts that the College in particular and the University at large are exercising. He said he strongly hopes that the recognition of top-performing students will give them the extra impetus and momentum for even more great performance and also motivate others who have the potential to make it to this level. He said, “Students should believe in the saying, ‘Nothing is impossible to a willing heart.’ What is required from you students is to believe in yourself and to think that you can achieve what you want provided that you make the effort your envisaged goal requires. Remember that, all the time, good life requires good effort.”


Top scoring students were awarded by Prof. Nigussie Dechassa, Vice-president for Academic Affairs. The Professor said, “Today, we are living in a highly competitive world where opportunities are very much limited as compared to the number of professionals universities and other training institutions are producing. It means that a mere graduation from a program alone is not enough by itself. To break into this highly competitive job market, we need to double or triple our efforts. Most of the vacant positions require extra-ordinary achievements in ones field of specialization. This implies that we need to exert an effort that gets us to the top position where free seats are still available.”


The award ceremony was organized and presented by CAES in collaboration with the College’s Registrar Office. During the occasion, Mr. Belayneh Engidawork, Registrar Head of the College, said this kind of event will continue in the future in a better way to encourage students.
