As part of efforts in revamping the already messy educational system of the country, the President of the Bomi County Community College (BCCC), Dr. Zobong Boima Norman, has completed renovation of two labs of the College intended to enhance the learning capacity of students. Dr. Zobong Boima Norma named a modern computer lab and an expanded medical lab intending for nursing students of the college.
The computer lab currently has 30 computers intended for 30 students of the college at a particular time for practical work. According to Dr. Norman, before the dedication of the renovated computer lab there were only three computers for students, something that made it difficult for students to conduct practical at the college three months back. “In the new computer lab, we have 24,000 BTU air conditioner and a projector that will help teach with their lesson, something that was never in the old computer lab,” Dr. Norman said. The Bomi County Community College President further stressed that, 28 of the new flat screen computers were donated by his former university, the New England Institute of Technology in the United States of America Rhode Island, and Mary T. Broh, Director General GSA, who also gave 12 computers for the upgrading of the lab. “The newly furbished computer lab has given the students of the Bomi County Community College extra dynamism in their educational sojourn,” he added. Dr. Zobong Boima Norman made these comments in Tubmanburg, Bomi County during an interview with a team of journalists on Friday April 21, 2017. “We are now requiring all of our students to do a computer course in other to add additional skills to whatever degrees they are pursuing for future readiness,” he indicated. The BCCC president also named the completion and expansion of the medical lab for nursing students of the Bomi County Community College as some the major achievements since he took over the college. “The medical Lab was very small when we took over, but we have expanded the lab with extra medical equipment for practical work to be carried out by our students,” Dr. Norman Boima indicated. He further expressed thanks and appreciation to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for appointing him to serve the people of his native county. The Bomi County Community College is not only catering to Bomi alone but other counties within the western region where students from Gbapolu, Cape Mount and rural Montserrado counties are currently pursuing degrees.
