Samelia Mekporsigbe, a class 3 pupil of Battor DA Primary School from North Tongu Constituency, defeated 17 other district champions in the reading competition.
In reward of her excellence, north Tongu legislator, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has given GHc3,000 to the eight-year-old winner of the Volta Regional Reading Competition.
The 8 year old genius also received a Samsung Tablet with free internet connection and a wide array of e-reading collections from the MP.
While sharing the news and photos on his Facebook page, Ablakwa post read;
I”t was a delight to receive a victorious delegation led by North Tongu Director of Education, Mrs. Isabella Regina Ayimey as they presented to me the phenomenal Samelia Mekporsigbe, a class 3 pupil of Battor DA Primary School in my beloved constituency, and winner of the Volta Regional Reading Competition sponsored by the USAID Learning initiative.
The amazing 8-year-old daughter of a NaBCo trainee will proceed to represent the Vollta Region at the national level in a few weeks after emerging the best from the circuit, district, and regional level where she competed with 17 other district champions.
I was glad to donate a Samsung Tablet with free internet connectivity and a wide array of e-reading collections for Samelia.
She has also been placed on the MP’s scholarship programme for additional academic assistance until she graduates from the university. She tells me she wants to be a Judge.
I also handed out a cash amount of GHS3,000 to support her preparations for the national reading competition in Accra.
The Chiefs and people of North Tongu are really proud of young Samelia. We wish her the very best at the national competition, and assure her of bigger deserving surprises.
God bless Samelia and her awesome family.
