The Scholarship Secretariat has granted full scholarships to all continuing senior high school students of Denkyira Obuasi.
The scholarship scheme is in line with measures by government in collaboration with stakeholders to aid in the restoration of the town which gained notoriety in May 2017 for the lynching of Major Maxwell Mahama.
The 32-year-old soldier was killed by a mob at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region while on official duties on Monday, May 29, 2017. He was given a state burial with full military honors on Friday 9th June 2017.
According to the Scholarship Secretariat, persons from Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region entering senior high school for the first time would be covered by the government’s Free SHS policy.
Those in their second and third year would be given full scholarships under the Secretariat’s “Hardship Scholarship” to complete their courses, Registrar of the Secretariat, Kingsley Agyemang told media on Tuesday.
