Daniel Ananey- Obiri, a graduate from the University of Ghana is the proud recipient of the Accra Brewery Limited prize for Best Student in Food Process Engineering award for the 2015/2016 academic year, sponsored by Accra Brewery Limited (ABL).
Mr Ananey-Obiri received a new laptop and cash of GHC 5,000 at the Vice Chancellor’s Academic Awards ceremony at the university’s Great Hall. ABL has been an annual sponsor of this award since 2007.
The recently held ceremony attracted 67 individual sponsors and 42 corporate sponsors but it was ABL’s package that generated a lot of excitement when it was presented to the awardee, who is currently a Teaching Assistant at the Food Process Engineering Department.
“I am very encouraged by this honour and it will urge me on to achieve more of my academic goals. This is a humbling moment for me and it crowns the hard work I put in whiles I was an under-graduate. I am entirely grateful to ABL”, Mr Ananey-Obiri said.
Head of the Technical Department at ABL, Mr Richard Eghan noted that “this gesture is in fulfilment of ABL’s long standing partnership with the Food Processing Engineering department of the University of Ghana to provide internship opportunities for their students at the brewery and also instituting the ABL prize for the best graduating student.
“It falls in line with our bid to support academia through training students to meet industry requirements. We want to make a difference in our communities because, together we achieve more and together we are stronger”.
