On April 5th, the finalists from Kabarak University's various schools, including Law, Education, Business, Science, Engineering and Technology, Music and Media, Health Sciences, and Pharmacy, led the special Wednesday service, known as Finalist Wednesday. This event marked an emotional and bittersweet moment for the 4.2s and 5.3s as they gave their final speech before transitioning into their professional careers.
As the chapel service began, the atmosphere was tense, but as the students started giving their testimonies, the mood lightened up. They shared their stories, experiences, and lessons learned while at Kabarak University. The students expressed their gratitude to the university for providing a nurturing environment that allowed them to grow academically, spiritually, and personally.
The students also discussed their expectations and career aspirations and how Kabarak University had equipped them to face the challenges ahead. They emphasized the importance of hard work, dedication, and perseverance in achieving their goals.
In addition to the Finalist Wednesday service, the university had another reason to celebrate. The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Ronald Chepkilot, received a trophy on behalf of the university's men's netball team, which had emerged as second runners-up in the national championships held at the University of Eldoret.
In his speech, Prof. Ronald Chepkilot congratulated the netball team for their achievement and encouraged them to continue practicing and aiming for higher positions in future competitions. He also urged the finalists to apply the Christian biblical principles they had learned at Kabarak University in their respective workplaces and to always put God first.
The Wednesday service for the finalists and their subsequent trophy win were symbolic of Kabarak University's unwavering commitment to fostering well-rounded individuals who excel not only academically but also spiritually. The university's emphasis on values and character-building sets it apart from other institutions of higher learning, and it is a testament to the profound impact it has on its students.
As the finalists departed from the chapel, emotions ran high, but there was an overwhelming sense of hope and optimism for the future. Kabarak University had equipped them with the necessary tools to face the world with confidence and resilience, and they were eager to embark on the next chapter of their lives. The university's dedication to nurturing the whole person, both intellectually and spiritually, has undoubtedly contributed to the success of its students and the institution as a whole.
