Strathmore University Scholarship Donor-I&M Bank Visit their Beneficiaries
The second group of I&M Bank Scholars, currently in their second year of study at Strathmore University were expectant to meet, for the second time with their sponsors I&M Bank to discuss their progressive performance. This was to live up to the words of Henry Ford; Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, and working together is success.
The beneficiaries included; Daphne and Barkley from Strathmore Law School (SLS), JudyAlice and Felister from Bachelor of Business Information Technology (BBIT), Hope, Vincent, and Junior from Bachelor of Commerce (BCOM), Rolly and Gloria from School of Finance and Applied Economics (SFAE)
During this meeting the beneficiaries were given the opportunity to talk about themselves, their interests, their co-curricular activities and their experiences at the university so far. They also had the chance to express their gratitude to the Bank for the chance they received to pursue their education, which has made a big difference in their lives. It proved the point that goodness is the only investment that never fails. The scholars also spoke of how Strathmore helped to shape their perspective on life, built them spiritually, and improved their character and personality. This session by far was the most enjoyable as the sponsor team came to understand the beneficiaries better; beyond grades and fee payment.
I&M bank expressed their desire to offer mentorship in a bid to interact with the students more and get to know them personally. They offered invaluable advice to the students tackling areas such as career planning, a glimpse of the corporate world, and how to handle life in university and out of university. They were also guided on how to navigate various challenges in their student life.
