A visiting Fulbright Scholar from the North Carolina A & T State University, USA, Prof. Paul Drikomah, has donated assorted books to the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management.
Presenting the books, which cover areas in hospitality management and tourism management , Prof. Ankomah said he would continue to make such donations to stock the Department’s library to improve teaching and learning.He was confident that the books would be used for their intended purposes to enhance effective research by both lecturers and students at the Department.
Prof. Ankomah encouraged the students to remain resolute and focus on their dreams, stressing that, “There is nothing that you cannot do. Once you put your mind on anything, everything is possible.” He advised the students to make good use of the library to improve their studies and enhance their academic success.
For his part, the Head of the Department, Prof. Kwaku Boakye, who received the items on behalf of the Department, thanked Prof. Ankomah for the kind gesture and added that the donation would go a long way to help the students in their studies.
