Faculty of Arts has honoured four retired teaching staff members for their meritorious service to the University.
The four are Dr. (Mrs.) Cecelia Quartey, Ms. Comfort Asante, Prof.D.D. Kuupole and Prof. N.N Kuofie. They each received a citation for their immense contributions to the Faculty.
The send-off ceremony, which was held at the Amissah Arthur Language Center, was organized by the Faculty of Arts Welfare Association.
In his address, the Dean of the Faculty, Prof. J.B.A Afful, commended the retirees for their immense contributions to the faculty while in active service.
"We commend you for your loyalty and commitment and dedication to duty," he noted.
He added that the citations were intended to serve as reminders to their loyalty and hard work during their heyday at the Faculty.
He appealed to the retirees to make themselves available to enable others to benefit from their array of experience. He urged the retirees to take good care of their health and wished them the best in their endeavours.
Prof. N.N. Kwofie, who spoke on behalf of the retirees, gave the assurance that they were prepared to share their wealth of experience with those in active service. Prof. Kwofie, who composed the University's anthem, encouraged those in active service to give off their best to uplift the image of the Faculty.
Some students from the Department of Music and Dance thrilled the gathering to good music.
