Laureates and OLLC Principal
Our Lady of Lourdes College, O.L.L.C, Mankon has emerged overall best of 22 schools in the Cameroon Academic Honour Roll's maiden edition. The college won the leading position thanks to Nde Fon Njweng and Ashlexy Shikei Tanagng who emerged overall best female science and best female mathematics students respectively for the 2011/2012 Academic Year.
The World Vision for Education and Development, WVED, coordinator and Vision Bearer for the Cameroon Academic Honour Roll Programme, CAHRP, Helvecia Nformbi Takwe, explained the opportunity was opened to all 32 schools in the three sub divisions of Bamenda recognised by the Ministry of Secondary Education but only 22 responded in time.
Each school had seven laureates, that is, one from form one to upper sixth, except OLLC with nine laureates because she produced the overall best female students in science and mathematics. CAHRP vision bearer said laureates were selected based on results the principals of the 22 colleges had provided.

"From 2012 to 2014, we are going to continue working with schools in Bamenda I, II and III sub divisions, though it is our greatest wish to expand to other regions in Cameroon. However, because of some financial constraints, we cannot do it all alone, but with the help of all the stakeholders we are sure to move to higher heights," Takwe noted.
Each laureate was awarded a gold medal of excellence and an attestation. Talking to the press, CAHRP Honorary President and Fon of Chomba, His Majesty Fobuzie Martin Asanji II, said the exercise was the best means of instilling "--- the spirit of hard work in young men and women to achieve the best in their academic life."
WVED runs the Cameroon Academic Honour Roll Programme in partnership with Community Initiative for Sustainable Development, COMINSUD and Fidel Arts Company.
