The Vice-Chancellor has underscored the crucial role the University of Cape Coast (UCC) has played in transforming his life.
He noted that the University has contributed to his success story in life adding that "It is this University that has made me what I am and who I am today".
Prof. Kuupole said this at the Choralfest organised by the Voices of Accountability in his honour and the 2016 retirees of the University.
Recounting his youthful days, Prof. Kuupole narrated that when he gained admission into UCC, a friend told him to opt for Customs Service rather than teaching but decided to pursue his passion. "Now I am here as a teacher of high calibre; I am here as an administrator; I am here as a social worker and I dont regret", Prof Kuupole indicated.
He seized the chance to advise future Vice-Chancellors not to underestimate the contributions of the senior and junior staff in the discharge of his or her duties noting that "Those (FUSSAG and TEWU) are the people who will make you succeed. "
