As part of his developmental initiatives, Dr. Emmanuel Daykeay has begun the construction of a school and clinic projects that are aimed at addressing the educational and health needs of people in the county and beyond. Speaking in an interview via mobile phone from the United States of America (USA), Dr. Daykeay, who is also a former Executive Director of the Association of Liberian Universities (ALU), stated that the school, named and styled, “Vision School System,” will provide both academic and vocational education, with the academic side also running both basic (elementary) and higher education.
“The Vision Campus has finished at 90 percent. The school will be opening this year (2021/2022. For the first year, we will operate from pre-grade – 6thgrade and next year we run from 7th to 9th grade and then the succeeding year we extend it by adding 10th to 12th grade. This is a vision and this is why we are called the Vision School System,” he stated. For the upper level, the Vision College, Dr. Daykeay explained, will offer five disciplines, namely; Business, Mass Communication, Health Science (Nursing), Agriculture and Education and with an option to add Theology. According to him, the higher level will offer both Associate and Bachelor’s Degrees as well certificate programs.
Commenting on the under construction “Tupee Community Clinic,” which is named after his late mother, he indicated will be officially opened to the public in 2022. “The clinic is presently under construction in Buchanan City. Our students will be required to pay health fees and treated at our clinic. The clinic is named after my late mother, who was a professional nurse,” he pointed out. “I promised her before she died that I was going to build a clinic in her name. It is a six-room clinic and is located behind the Bassa High School. When completed, the clinic will have a waiting room, an examination room, a lab, patients’ room for short stay, a pharmacy and patients’ room for long stay,” asserted the former Senatorial candidate.
