JUBILATION filled the air as 389 graduands from Nyabyeya Forestry College, Masindi district, were awarded certificates and diplomas at the collegeâ€™s 47th graduation on Friday.
Patrick jaramogi reports that the 389 graduated in Forestry, Agro-Forestry, Bee keeping, Carpentry and Wood Technology.
Addressing the graduands, the principal, Dr. Wilson Kasolo, said, â€œNyabyeya Forestry College is the only institution which offers technical level forestry training in the country. Todayâ€™s graduation highlights our humble contribution to sustainable forest resources management in this country.â€
He said since the college was established in 1948, it had developed diverse programmes and enriched the contents of the traditional ones in response to changing dimensions in forest resources.
â€œI am glad to report that there is growing interest in our programmes, with female enrolment also increasing due to our deliberate affirmative action and gender mainstreaming,â€ he said.
