By Michael Muratha 

 

129 students were presented with diplomas and certificates at the 41st Kenya Forestry College graduation ceremony held in Londiani, Kericho County. The colorful ceremony was graced by various dignitaries including KFS Board Chairman Peter Kinyua, KFS Board of Directors, Chief Conservator of Forests Emilio Mugo, college management among other guests.

 

Addressing the graduands and guests KFS Board Chairman Peter Kinyua noted that the college was an important resource for the Service as it was contributing to the attainment of KFS`s mandate. In his concluding remarks he saluted the graduands and congratulated them for their tremendous efforts. 

 

Speaking at the same ceremony Chief Conservator of Forests Emilio Mugo commended the graduands for successfully completing the course. He further urged them to utilize the skills they had learnt in nation building. 

 

To date the college has released over 4,000 men and women into the job market. The college now plans to introduce other marketable courses including carpentry, joinery, emerging issues such as climate change, carbon trading, trans-boundary forest resources and biodiversity. The college has also registered with the Technical Vocational Education and Training Authority (TVETA), making it easier for students to access bursaries and loans from the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB). This has gone a long way to motivate the students and ensured a smooth learning process.
