Econet rewards top university students

MASERU – TWELVE students from Limkokwing University of Creative Technology (LUCT) and the National University of Lesotho (NUL) have been awarded prizes for excelling in their academic studies.

The awards were given at two graduation ceremonies which were held at the universities’ campuses on September 28 and October 7.

Those awarded prizes were from Information Technology, CISCO networking, Physics & Electronics, Engineering, Marketing, Business Administration and Management, Statistics & Demography and Public Relations.

Econet Chief Executive Leon de Fleuriot said the cash will help the students find their feet after completing their studies.

“We cannot ignore the increasing unemployment rate which has affected everyone especially the young graduates and this is how we are contributing to the startups that the graduates would like to venture into,” de Fleuriot said.

De Fleuriot said the awards will also help create opportunities for some of the graduates.

One of the recipients from NUL, Tšoanelo Masilo, a statistics and demography graduate thanked Econet for recognising their hard work.

“I, personally was not expecting any award but receiving one from Econet left me humbled,” Masilo said.

Masilo said she had not yet figured out how she was going to spend her money.

’Mapula Mosoeunyane, a Public Relations graduate from LUCT, also expressed her appreciation to Econet on behalf of her fellow LUCT graduates who received Econet awards.

“I am honored and grateful to be one of the Econet awards recipients in addition to the excellence award that I was presented with by the university,” Mosoeunyane said.

ETL performance awards are received by high quality performing tertiary students from different institutions in the country during the annual graduations ceremonies.
