Bishop Barham graduates

Twenty-nine students on March 23 graduated at Bishop Barham Constituent College in Kabale.
Among the top performing graduates was Bernard Boonabantu of Bachelor of Arts in Education with a GPA of 3.98, followed

by Elizabeth Mbabazi and Martin Barigye of Bachelor of Development Studies with 3.95 and 3.91 respectively.
For the master’s degree, Timothy Akampurira Bwambale emerged the best with a GPA of 4.78.
Presiding over the graduation and representing the chancellor, the Vice-Chancellor, Dr John Senyonyi urged the students to behave like educated people and serve beyond their specialisations.
“If you are truly educated, you should exhibit this by showing awareness beyond the specialisation of your certificate. An educated person should be and must be knowledgeable in those things which will be necessary to live a gainful life.”
“You should be well-informed and function intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally and physically,” Senyonyi said.
He thanked the parents, guardians and well-wishers who supported the students through their stay at the university, and urged the students to keep in touch with the university.
“You’re joining hundreds of other alumni of UCU to put to use the knowledge and skills acquired here. The alumni association is waiting for you to be an active member. This gives you the opportunity to keep informed about UCU, and be involved in it in the years ahead.”
The guest of honour, who is also Bishop of Kigezi Diocese, the Rt Rev George Katwesigye, told the graduates to keep the university flag flying high, and emulate the previous graduates who have excelled at their work places.
“The respect [for Uganda Christian University] is growing and should never stop growing; you need to make it your identity,” he said.
The BBUC Principal, Prof Manuel Muranga, advised all the graduates to get into a real relationship with God, so as not to have suicidal thoughts as they enter the frustrating period of job-seeking.
It is the second part of of this year’s graduation at BBUC, after the one that takes place in October.
