On November 21, 2019, members of the AUN Honor Society (AUNHS) visited Government Day Secondary School, Vunoklang, to inspect the community service project they funded – the renovation of a block of classrooms.
President of the Society, Todimu Sola-Idowu, said AUNHS was built on four pillars: scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
At the school located in Girei Local Government Area, the HS students were received by the Vice Principal, Hyelakari Bate Malgwi. He said the block of classrooms was an intervention by the Parent-Teacher Association.
Vice President of HS, Odinaka Okemini, said the Society was happy to extend its voluntary service to the school.
Mr. Okemini explained that the project entails flooring, plastering of the walls, and painting of the entire block. He said the motivation for the project was to contribute to creating a conducive learning environment for the students.
Speaking on behalf of the students, an SS1 student, Gladys Iliya, thanked the Society members for the gesture.
The AUN Honor Society is a prestigious organization of high-achieving students. Membership is usually by invitation. The Honor Society provides leadership through the services members render to not only members of the university community but that of the host community.
HS usually organizes different fundraiser activities to execute its community service projects. They include Jazz Night for faculty members and a raffle draw where tickets are sold to students and the winner gets a cash prize. The community service is one of the numerous ways that AUN reaches out to its host community.
