A young girl who recently sat for her 2023 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exams at Milimani Botwa Primary School, has been granted a full scholarship by the Trans Nzoia governor, George Natembeya.
The Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) is a crucial milestone for students in Kenya, akin to Nigeria’s common entrance examination, determining their eligibility for entry into secondary school.
For young girl whose name is Agnes Nasimiyu, this momentous occasion was marked not only by academic excellence but also by an unexpected opportunity that promises to transform her future.
Nasimiyu, coming from an underprivileged background, couldn’t hold back her tears of joy upon learning that Governor Natembeya had offered her a full scholarship.
The scholarship, generously provided, will cover her entire four-year education at Bunyore Girl’s High School, enabling Nasimiyu to pursue her academic aspirations without the financial constraints that have often hindered students from similar backgrounds.
The governor’s decision to extend a helping hand to Nasimiyu was sparked by her outstanding KCPE performance, where she scored an impressive 377 marks.
This remarkable achievement caught the attention of Governor Natembeya, who was quick to recognize and reward her potential.
“I am very happy to the extent that I have nothing else to say,” Nasimiyu said after being presented with the scholarship.
