The institution’s management may have been embroiled in some administrative bickering but the students of the University of The Gambia (UTG) continue to excel in different areas of professional and academic areas around the world.
One of the university’s alumni has stolen the show in Turkey where he graduated with flying colours. Mr.bdoulie Touray bags a BSc. in Chemistry with a minor in Biology at the UTG. He graduated as the most outstanding chemistry student of the UTG’s 2013 graduating class. Touray worked for Kotu Senior Secondary School as a Chemistry teacher and later joined Medical Research Council as an intern in the molecular diagnostics platform before being appointed as a trainee scientific officer in the malaria research platform.
In September 2014, he was awarded an MSc. scholarship by the Turkish government to study Biochemistry. Abdoulie has just graduated as the most outstanding student.
Touray paid tribute to family and well-wishers without whose encouragement and support he would not have achieved the outstanding success. “I am very much humbled by the congratulatory messages and prayers I received from family, friends and well wishers,” Abdoulie Touray told GLife. “I would like to say a very big thank you to each and everyone. In addition, I specifically thank my brother Lamin N. Touray and his family for the selfless support they have always rendered to me during my entire academic journey.”
