The Student Council of GS FAME Institute of Business held its induction and turnover ceremonies on Friday, October 5. The Student Council officers for the school year 2018-2019 headed by Richard Wang, the President, with his Vice President, Paul Vincent Leuterio were officially sworn into office by the institute’s Head of International Programs, Mr. Christopher T. Cura.
Richard rendered his inaugural speech with optimism and he emphasized the importance of teamwork and dedication in achieving the goals of the student council. He told the group that “size does not matter,” because he believed that although the GS FAME officers are few in numbers, everything would be possible if they will work together as a team to reach their goals.
