Tonny Ongin, now an alumnus of  B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, emerged the overall best student in sciences with a CGPA of 4.86. The former Student of Teso College Aloet was the proud recipient of the Chancellor’s Award which comprised sh1m and other gifts.

Upon hearing that Ongim attended Teso College Aloet, university chancellor Prof. Mondo Kagonyera, described him as a genius and asked the Government to support children in rural schools.“Our best student did not come from Budo, Namagunga, Gayaza or St. Mary’s college Kisubi, which are the first world secondary schools. He studied in schools in the village,” said Kagonyera. “Let us take higher education upcountry; there are more geniuses in those schools that are being left out,” he added.

Tonny Ongin mentioned that he was very happy and felt honoured to receive this award. His mother however seemed even more proud of the accomplishment that her son had achieved.
