T

he old but popular saying “School days are the best” was actualized (apparently for the first time for some) in the lives of 12 former high graduates of the Catholic-run Don Bosco Technical High School located in Sinkor, Monrovia as they held a re-union in observance of a decade celebration of The Technocrats (Class of ’98-’99). Yes, reuniting 10 years after graduating from high school is indeed a hallmark of perpetual spirit of fraternalism!!!

 

Despite attending colleges/universities thereafter and acquiring university degrees in different disciplines and professional careers while others are in the process of doing so, 12 committed members of the class met on Sunday, July 11, 2009 at the “ Big Treat Restaurant & Bar”, an entertainment center located in the Sinkor suburb, specifically on 9th Street between Coleman and Chessman Avenues where they did not only party all night long but they held a brief but significant discussion as they reminisced from the past glorious and enjoyable days.

Attendees of The Event

Technocrats attending the ‘Decade Celebration’ of one of the best classes ever produced by Don Dosco were Sam Oye (President), Nat Nyuan-Bayjay (Spokesman/Secretary), Aaron Weah (Special Advisor), Jerry B. Wensae (Parliamentarian Emeritus), Buku Gailar, Cosby Pelham, Victoria Agordo, Henry Federicks, Wreh Geayon, Wennie Selegarjallah, Wallace Johnnylone.

 

Decade Celebrants & Their Activities

After 10 years, members of the Class have been of vital contributions in the Liberian society as most of them are professionals; earning earnest and honest livelihoods in different careers while others, though still in colleges are self-employed.

Side Attractions

In addition to the 11 members who attend the Decade Event, a wife and two fiancées (girlfriends) as well as kids of the Technocrats graced the occasion.

 

Mrs. Zahn Nyuan-Bajyay who was recently married to Nat Nyuan-Bajyay and Natlyn Bayjay (daughter of Nat) consisted of Nat’s family represented at the Event while Selegarjallah’s fiancée and baby accompanied him to the Event.

 

But notably and admirably too among those who graced the Event was a member but yet another fiancée of another member whose relationship has been going since school days. Victoria Agordo has been the fiancée of Sam Oye since 11th Grade (1998) and they are on the verge of getting married. As a matter of fact, their decade long relationship has been blessed with a charming little girl.

 

The rejuvenation of the spirit of The Technocratic Class clearly demonstrates the continuity of the Class’ unity that was begun as far back as its 10th Grade year during the ’96-’97 Academic Year.
