Meet Mak 70th Graduation’s Best Sciences Student

During the previous Makerere University 69th and 68th Graduation Ceremonies, the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) presented the best Sciences student from the School of Food Technology, Nutrition and Bio Engineering.

CAES has ushered in the new year by producing the best overall Sciences student for Makerere University's 70th Graduation Ceremony slated for 14th 17th January 2020.

The 22-year-old female, Ms. Namayengo Sarah with a CGPA of 4.83 has been undertaking the four-year Bachelor of Conservation Forestry and Products Technology under the Department of Forestry, Biodiversity and Tourism (FBT), School of Forestry, Environmental and Geographical Sciences (SFEGs), CAES.

"I am very excited for today. It is not a surprise to get a first class degree because I have been working for it, but I did not expect to emerge the best overall in sciences but I thank God for it.

My education has been quite smooth and good. I must say, I have been a very lucky person because I have been getting scholarships and bursaries to study. I have been a hard working girl from as way back as nursery," the soft-spoken Namayengo said in an interview.
