The Director of Academic Planning and Quality Assurance at the University for Development Studies (UDS), Professor Herbert Kwabla Dei, has urged graduates to make good use of the knowledge acquired in school to better their lives and improve society.
Professor Dei said knowledge and skills would not be relevant unless they were put into use profitably and asked Graduates of various tertiary institutions to use their skills productively to transform society and improve the economy.
Professor Dei was speaking at the maiden graduation ceremony of the Regentropfen College of Applied Science (ReCAS), at Namoog-Kansoe in the Upper East Region.
He said transforming the lives of people with the skills acquired in school would tell how relevant the Graduates were to society with whatever qualification they had obtained and reminded them that society might ignore their existence if they failed to be productive.
The Chairman of the College Council, Mensah Senadze, called on the graduates to be agents of change in society, community transformers, applied inventors and national leaders, to solve community and national level challenges.
Mr Senadze urged them to strive hard and never stop learning as society was dynamic and their skills might not be relevant after some time.
About twenty five graduates were honoured with certificates of Diploma in Basic Education, Agriculture for social change, Computer science, Business in administration and Accounting.
