Maxwell bids a fond farewell to his beloved CEU

This archived article was written by: Maxwell Acheampong

I would like to take this privilege to express my love and appreciation to Almighty God for bringing me to this far of my schooling at CEU. I am so happy to get to know the wonderful people in this school.
I would like to take this time to show my appreciation, my gratitude to the school, President Ryan Thomas and his wife Ann, the admission, staff, Dave Paur, Jane Johnson, Bill Osborn, Brad King, Steve Burge and all the professors in the college as well the as the campus police Phyl Johnson and James Prettyman and the ASCEU leadership.
I would like my family to also know how much that I love them and my stake presidency, my bishop David Hinkins, The Shulz’s Family, and Vanice and Angela. All these people have been a source of help.
Since I came to this school I have enjoyed being here. The professors in this school are so wonderful and are always willing to help us, the students, achieve our goals in life. The students here are also kind. I would like to say thank you to the entire studentbody for their friendliness.
It is very hard to leave this school, but the time has come for me to leave. Since I came here, I have been able to associate with so many people. I had a chance of being among the ASCEU leadership and serving as multicultural chair. I thank Jed Lloyd and his executives for this privilege. Some of my duties were to take care of the international students, be with the school academic committee, serve on the student fee allocation committee and to serve the students in the school and to defend the good name of CEU.
I also became Mr. CEU for the 2003-04 school year, and had a chance of teaching a cultural dance class at the school. I am so happy to see how these wonderful ladies and guys are willing to learn how to dance and drum from a different culture. I am going to miss them a lot. I would like to say thank you to Carolyn Gwyther for the privilege that she gave to me.
Finally, I would like to say that I have learned a lot from this school. I have enjoyed so many activities; games at the BDAC, soccer club, and taking part of various activities in the school. I have also learned how to work hard as a student. My little advice to the student is that by not giving up, and working hard, we will make it in future. It is very fun to enjoy college life, but it can also be hard at times. It is really hard to say good bye and hard to see it end, but I know that the memories we have made will stay forever. I would like to encourage the entire studentbody that as we study very hard we shall surely become the leaders of the world.
Once again, thanks to all the professors, staff, students and workers at the cafeteria. CEU the best the place to be. Eagles forward ever, backward never. GO, GO, GO, Eagles GOOOOOOOOO.
