NIGERIAN GIRL IS BEST GRADUATING STUDENT AT US UNIVERSITY



Merrilyn Akpapuna



Nigerians are good in academic pursuits is something that the world is beginning to become aware of. Here is another Nigerian making the Nation Proud in far away America.
..Like a giant masquerade in the market place, all eyes were on 20-year-old Nigerian, Merrilyn Akpapuna, two Saturdays ago at the Dillard University, New Orleans, United States.

The Psychology graduate not only obtained the highest academic honour Summa Cum Laude (first class), she also emerged the best graduating student in the ivory tower.





 As the institution’s valedictorian, she was on the same podium with the wife of the President, Michelle Obama, during its convocation.


Interestingly, three other Nigerians joined Akpapuna in the league of the best graduating students at the university. The three salutatorians are Victor Ogburie, Stephen Igwe, and Emole Anyadimgba. They also made a first class in their chosen disciplines.


Besides, Akpapuna won two other awards for highest academic achievements for the College of Arts and Sciences and College of General Studies.
