GHANA: Adventist University President Gets High Civilian Honor
Valley View University (VVU) president Seth Abaya Abang Laryea recently received one of Ghana’s highest national awards given to private citizens, the Order of the Volta, in recognition of his contributions to college-level education. Formally called Adventist Missionary College, VVU was established in 1979 by the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
Ghana’s president, John Agyekum Kufuor, presented Laryea with the award at a ceremony held July 3, 2008, at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Laryea and 250 other Ghanaians were awarded for their exceptional contributions toward the development and well-being of the country, said President Kufuor.
