I take this opportunity to congratulate the graduating class of 2017 for their exceptional achievement. This is a very important chapter the success story you have been authoring.   

It gives me pride to be associated with Maasai Mara University as Alumni. This University, in 2015, graduated me in not only Undergraduate degree in Education, but also in the value for honesty, integrity, hard work and value based leadership, virtues too important for the world you are getting into.  It was an extra ordinary privilege to me extended to serve as a Student Leader in charge of Academic Affairs, a role that crowned me in 2017 with Exemplary Student Leader of the Year Award by AYLF (Africa Youth Leadership Forum & National Prayer Breakfast). This has changed the story of my life. It’s that gospel of transformational leadership that catalysed me to initiate the Youth Empower Program working at community grass root levels.

As you receive the power to read today and to do all that appertains it, I say, Congratulations!. This is just one key, though so golden, to unlock the unlimited potential in you for the pursuit of happiness, liberty and the immense opportunities the world will offer. However, despite the opportunities, one year outside Campus has taught me that challenges are real, which must be overcome to realize the beauty of your dreams. “In every challenge, take time to think of the lessons learned, recording small wins and setbacks, documenting conflict between value and practice. Don’t stop after naming the first three or four obvious accomplishments or joys of your life, continue until you have named two dozen sources of pride or more”, Kathy Whitmire counsels.

Finally, I thank the ad hoc committee for the establishment of the MMU Alumni Association and having a constitution for it. I encourage the graduands of 2017 to register immediately in the MMU website and be part of this interactive platform.

God bless you, and God bless Maasai Mara University.
