Eighty five students who performed best in the January 2017 Semester were presented at a luncheon held on July 29,2017, at Crowne Plaza Hotel. The luncheon was organised courtesy of the Admissions and Records department of the Academic Division.
Twenty eight students from the School of Communication were awarded, 19 from the School of Arts and Humanities, 17 from the School of Business and Economics, 13 from the School of Human and Social Science and Eight from the School of Science, Engineering and Health.
During the Luncheon, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Timothy Wachira said that his encouragement to the students who
had performed well is to use their gifts wisely. “The sooner you are able to know how precious time is you will never take anything for granted. Be humble and work even harder not only as a student but in everything and also in any relationship you get in to.
DVC Academic Affairs Prof James Kombo told the students that the certificates should not be a show off but a reminder of something that God had done in their lives.
Three students on the Deans List gave testimonies .
Ms Beulah Njagi, a student from Athi River campus who scored highest attributed her academic achievements to God and termed it a part of worship. She expressed gratitude to the schools administration for the resources that enabled the team to do exemplary well in their studies.
Ms. Leah Gitau from Valley Road campus followed as she fell short of words. “I joined Daystar but left due to a few hiccups. I thank God I am back and on the dean’s list.” She advised other students to take education seriously.
Kabaka, a post graduate student challenged the undergraduate students to be studious and stick to the Dean’s list forever. I have to work very hard to pay my school fees and so I don’t have a reason to perform poorly,” he said.
The luncheon ended at four o’clock as students left at their own pleasure with a word of Prayer from Assistant Chaplain Rev. Musili.
