Veteran Science Educator and Tutor at the Koforidua based Seventh – Day Adventist (SDA) College of Education (SEDACOE), Mr. Sylvester Korsi Mawusi has climbed up the ladder to occupy the second most important position at the St. Francis College of Education at Hohoe in the Volta Region, Colleges of Education Weekly Journal reports.
According to the Journal, the position which has been vacant for the past four years due to the absence of a Governing Council, was advertised in August, 2019 to qualified applicants. Before his appointment as Vice Principal of the Volta Region based College, Mr. Mawusi was the Head of Department (HOD) for Science, and Director of Research at the Adventist Institution. Before his transfer to the SDA College of Education, he had taught the subject (Science) at the Holy Child College of Education. Mr. Mawusi is also the Centre Co-ordinator for the University of Cape Coast Outreach Degree Programme.
For his educational background, Mr. Mawusi attended the Koforidua Senior High Technical School and completed in the year 1984. He continued his education at today’s St. Francis College of Education (formerly, Training College), and obtained a Teacher’s Certificate A in 1987. The renowned Educationist also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Science Education from the University of Cape Coast which certificate he obtained in the year 1998. Also, he possesses a certificate in Master of Arts (MA) Degree in Education Administration as well as a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) Degree in Science Education from the University of Education, Winneba (UEW). All this is according to reports by the Colleges of Education Weekly Journal.
The rich curriculum vitae (cv) of academic achievements, work experience and affiliation with one of the nation’s renowned universities (UCC), have conspired together to place Mr. Mawusi at a position as high as Vice Chancellor of his Alma Mater.
As a former student of SEDACOE, I wish Mr. Mawusi well in his new endeavour. It is my hope that his diligence, prompt response to duty and disciplinary attitude that were brought to bare on his work at SEDACOE, would be transferred to his current one, and help to offer him even bigger opportunities to serve mother Ghana.
