(Monrovia, Liberia – Monday, June 27, 2016) President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf on Monday, June 27, 2016 received the First Lady of the United States of America, Mrs. Michelle Robinson Obama at the Roberts International Airport. The US First Lady was accompanied by her two daughters, Malia and Sasha and her mother Marian Robinson. Mrs. Obama was in Liberia in furtherance of her legacy Program, “Girls Leading Our World” that seeks to promote girls’ education.

Government initiative aimed at ensuring adolescent girls across the world to attain a quality education that empowers them to reach their full potential. The initiative brings together the U.S. Department of State, U. S. Agency for International Development (USAID), Peace Corps, the Millennium Challenge Corporation and other agencies to address the range of challenges – both in and out of the classroom that make it difficult for over 62 million girls to get the education they deserve.

Thanks to Dr. Davis-Russell from MFP
Dr. Elizabeth Davis-Russell,
Congratulations on your retirement! After eight years of successfully working together for the advancement of a conducive learning environment and high quality education at the William V.S. Tubman University in Harper, Maryland County, Liberia, we will now need to begin adjusting to the idea that you are no longer at the helm as President, and will come to appreciate and miss you even more. Your leaving marks the end of an era at TU!
You have taken Tubman University to the leading edge of higher education, which is the kind of record that should be emulated. You have transformed TU into a first class institution, providing education and services, contributing to the southeast, Liberia and the world. Even more important are the genuine friendships you have developed over that period of time.
Therefore, on behalf of the Leadership Team, Your Fellow Members and Supporters of Marylanders for Progress (Liberia), Inc., please accept our utmost thanks and gratitude for your peerless performance. Know that your service to TU has been marked by unsurpassed efficiency and excellence, and an inspiration to us all at Marylanders for Progress.
Again, we send you our very best wishes for a happy retirement well deserved. We, your partners in progress, remain eternally grateful!
