TAIZ, Nov. 25 ) National Organization for Developing Society honored top students from the past educational year in Taiz Governorate.

The awards included high school graduates from the scientific, literary and English sections, the ten top students of primary school, top students from different faculties in Taiz University and the top students of technical, health and administrative education and teaching institutes.

Anisa Doukam, the program manager said there is an attempt to get enough support to honor the top high school students nationwide and expand the awarding scope to reach different governorates.

She urged trade companies and institutions to support the program, which, according to Doukam, is a real investment program.

Shawqi Al-Qadhi, MP, who chairs the organization, invited the concerned parties to pay closer attention to the talented students, whom he considered as the main pillar to developing the society and improving its situations.

Al-Qadhi pointed out that many students feel frustrated, particularly after the spread of exam cheating around the nation. He urged all civil community organizations to care for the talented students via their programs and called on businesses to support these activities and programs, saying “the door of donating to these activities is ever open.”

The developing society held the first awarding ceremony for outstanding students in December 2004. Over the past two years, the organization staged many training courses on computer, English and human development for the talented students.
