Eagon Pacific Plantation Limited (EPPL) in its continuous support to human resource development in the country has once again paid tuition for its sponsored students studying at the Solomon Islands National University (SINU) this year.
A cheque payment was delivered by Mr. Bo Young Moon – the Managing Director of Eagon to SINU’s vice chancellor Dr. Glynn Galo last week.
This year Eagon provides scholarships to another 15 Solomon Islands students studying in various schools and institutions in the country.
Out of 15 scholarships this year, 6 scholarships have been awarded for students to study at SINU.
When presenting the cheque to Dr. Galo, Eagon’s managing director said that the company is pleased to assist with education needs to local students and will improve its assistance to students studying at SINU in Forestry sector in future.
Dr. Galo in receiving the payment acknowledged the company for its continuous support for education in the country and provision of such assistance for local students.
During the presentation, the two parties also had a chance of discussing the possibility of establishing a long term relationship between them for students at SINU who enrolled in forestry studies to be accommodated by Eagon for their field of study or forest research at Eagon’s forestry plantation at Arara Camp.
This relationship or program has been accepted by both parties and MOU will be drawn up soon for its implementation.
Eagon which operates the forestry plantation in New Georgia, Western Province continues to support the country’s forestry sector through FSC certified reforestation since 1995.
