Martin Wleh Pennie, Vice President of ULAA

Monrovia – The Vice President of the University of Liberia Alumni Association (ULAA) is calling on Alumni to turn out in their mass to grace the occasion marking the homecoming of the state-run university.

In an exclusive interview with FrontPageAfrica, Martin Wleh Pennie, Vice President of ULAA, said the day will start with a grand parade that will begin at the old Ministry of Education building on Broad Street to the main campus of the University of Liberia on Capitol Hill.  

“This year homecoming is part of the centennial commencement. We are calling on all Alumni especially in Liberia to show out in their numbers on Friday to grace this occasion,” Pennie said.

“This event will be so great because it is the 100th graduation exercise the university will be having on the 12th of December. We are the mother university in the country so we got to show our strength by coming out in our numbers and welcome our prospective graduates who will soon be part of our Alumni Association.”

After the parade, he disclosed that an indoor program will be held in the auditorium of the University of Liberia at its Capitol Hill campus.

During the indoor program, prospective graduates will officially welcome Alumni back home and Alumni will also indoctrinate the prospective graduates to the University of Liberia Alumni Association. 

The University of Liberia is expected to graduate over 4,000 students both from the graduate and undergraduate programs. The centennial commencement program will be held at the Samuel Kayon Doe Sport Complex in Paynesville on December 12.
