Laweh Open University gave the advice during the 36th Speech and Prize Giving Day of the Nungua SHS in Accra, on Saturday, November 30, 2019.
Addressing the Students, Prof Goski, a former student of the school urged them to take their studies seriously so as to become good ambassadors to the school and the nation at large.
She said as students they must eschew truancy and laxity but strive to read their books so they could excel in their education.
Using herself as a study case for the students to aspire higher, the University Professor said, they must develop the attitude of successful people by knowing what they want to be, doing what they have to do and must try very hard not to do things they don’t want to do.
With that, Prof Goski said they could be shining examples worth emulating by other students in the country.
While charging the students, especially the females to shun intimate relationship with the males, the University don believed each of them has the chance of becoming President of the Republic of they take their education seriously.

She further advised the students to be self-discipline and restrain themselves from social vices that could derail their future.
Headmistress of the School, Mrs Ellen Asare-Pepra said, the school performance has improved remarkably but admitted more effort was been done to ensure that the standard is sustained.
