Nepha Wangsa receives Gold Medal for Highest Mark in Political Science
Miao, 1st December: Nepha Wangsa, son of a Touring Catechist from an interior village brings accolades to our Diocese by receiving Gold Medal at the 12th Convocation of Rajiv Gandhi University, Rono Hills, Doimukh, Itanagar, attended by Hon’ble Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Mr. Nabam Tuki and host of other public and political leaders, for securing the highest mark in Political Science in Arunachal Pradesh during the academic year 2011 – 2012.
Receiving the award from the Hon’ble Chancellor at the Convocation graced by Hon’ble President of India Mr. Pranab Mukherjee as Chief Gust , Nepha said, “I have faith in God that He will keep me well. I believe hard work is the only means to go ahead in life. Being the first son of the touring catechist of Ngissa Parish in an interior village in Longding District, I have learned that there is no substitute for hard work to succeed in life. My father taught me to work hard and leave the rest to God to take care.”
“I am so grateful,” he added “to those Fathers and Sisters who taught me. I fondly remember Rev. Fr. K C Vincent SDB and our Bishop George Pallipparambil who taught me that hard work coined with discipline is prerequisite for success in life.”
“The lesson I learned from the Fathers who taught me ‘Do something worth doing’ always rings in my ear,” he concluded.
Expressing joy at his son’s achievement, Mr. Wangjam Wangsa the Touring Catechist of Ngissa Parish said, “I cant hide my joy. He has made all of us proud. I hope that his example inspires many tribal boys and girls like him from remote villages like ours to make these ‘unknown’ villages known globally.
The Diocese of Miao congratulates Nepha and wishes him God’s blessings and success.
