Scholarship and Information officer, Ms. Sashana Sanderson in thanking donors encouraged them to continue giving as the University College intends on doubling the number of recipients who receive assistance. Sanderson continued, “You have made the sacrifice of assisting our students unwaveringly, without complaint and for that the Mico is completely indebted to you.”
