Miss Rebecca Iyoha, a final year Bio-Chemistry student at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, has been recognized for her academic excellence by the Golden Key International Honour Society.
Iyoha, who is the daughter of former Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly David Iyoha, was honored as an outstanding foreign student in Canada and granted all the benefits and privileges afforded to members of the Honor Society.
The Golden Key National Honour Society, founded in 1977, is a globally recognized organization with a presence in countries such as the United States, Australia, Malaysia, New Zealand, South Africa, and the Bahamas.
Upon receiving the news of her daughter’s honor, David Iyoha expressed gratitude to God and pride in his daughter’s achievements, stating that the honor not only belongs to his immediate family, but also to the Esan land, Edo State, and Nigeria as a whole.
He encouraged Nigerian immigrants studying abroad to be serious, polite, focused, and honest with themselves in their pursuit of success.
In her reaction, Rebecca Iyoha promised to continue to bring honor to her country and make her parents proud through her actions. She also advised Nigerian students abroad to be diligent in their studies and always be prepared to work hard for their goals.
