The Old Students of Cherubim and Seraphim College, Ilorin, Kwara State (1999 set) have reiterated their commitment to provide more support to the college so as to advance the infrastructural development and educational excellence of the school.

The  Chairman,  Board of Trustees of the 1999 Set of the college,  Mr. Shola Afolayan made the pledge in Ilorin while speaking with journalists on the contributions of the association to the institution.

He said the association has been united since their graduation in 1999 to add more value to the provision of quality education to the students of the college.

According to him, “We are Alumni under the aegis of  ‘99  Impact  Makers Foundation, driven by  a  collective  vision  to  illuminate the path to a brighter future for our beloved community.

“In  2018, a  group  of compassionate individuals, all alumni of Cherubim  &  Seraphim  College  Ilorin,  who  had  graduated together in the year 1999, united with a common purpose.

“From that moment, their journey has been nothing short of  extraordinary, leaving behind a legacy of hope, acts of  kindness, and profound transformations for our alma mater.”

He said, “During the Christmas celebration of 2018, we visited  an orphanage home, bringing smiles and warmth to the  children’s faces.

“Additionally, we distributed essential writing materials to  students so that education remained a priority. The impact,  however, extended far at Cherubim  and  Seraphim  College, Ilorin, ensuring beyond this initial endeavor.

“In a remarkable display of benevolence, we generously  provided cash donations and scholarships to 10 underprivileged  students still attending Cherubim and Seraphim College, thus lighting the path towards a brighter and more promising future  for these young scholars.”

He added that, “In 2020, our commitment to the community  remained steadfast as we distributed COVID19 relief packages  to vulnerable individuals, offering a lifeline during a  challenging time. Food donations to widows and the less  privileged further solidified their role as changemakers.

“In  2021,  the  foundation  continued their unwavering  commitment to  making  a  positive  impact  on  their community. We  embarked  on  a  visit  to  a  Muslim  children’s home,  where we presented  not  only  food items and  clothes  but  also  monetary support, spreading  joy  and  hope  to  those  in need.

“Additionally,  the foundation  extended their benevolent reach  to  an  orphaned boy, offering crucial assistance.”

Afolayan, however, assured that the Alumni would continue to rise to the need of the college in order to add more value to the educational development of the state.
