goodmorningpapua.com – Untirta was getting happy and proud of the release of 603 students with the Graduation ceremony on last Sunday (15/5). An interesting thing that happened to the release of the 603 students was the release of students coming from the land of Papua as well as recipients of the ADik scholarship (Higher Education Affirmation).
Hanok Simes, a student from Papua who succeeded to reach the point of departure/graduation yesterday. Hanok was also praised by the Chancellor of Untirta, Fatah Sulaiman, in front of hundreds of other students in his speech.
“Give a round of applause to Hanok Simes. Class of 2017 with a 3.65 GPA, from major of FKIP Pancasila and Citizenship Education. I think this will strengthen the power and unity of the Republic of Indonesia, thank you Hanok Sines, “said Fatah in his speech.
In an open interview by journalists, Fatah expressed his pride as one of the inaugural Papuan students who can be released (Graduated: ed). Fatah also revealed that he had carried out the mandate of the central government well, because he had educated Papuan younger students (Adik scholarship recipients).
“From Papua, I think this is also a pride, because we have a mandate from the central government to educate Papuan brothers and sisters. Then, earlier I graduated, I think I can return to Papua to also provide enlightenment to the people there (Papua), to maintain the integrity and unity of the Republic of Indonesia,” said Fatah in an open interview.
To the Public Relations Team, Hanok introduced himself and explained how he felt proud, happy, and touched, because he was chosen to be the first Papuan student to graduate at Untirta.
“My name is Hanok Simes, from Papua Province, Sarmi Regency. I am one of the recipients of the ADIK Papua scholarship program at Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa University, class of 2017,” said Hanok to the Public Relations Team.
“I feel proud, happy and touched by the appreciation from the Chancellor of the University of Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa as the first graduate of Papuan students through the Adik Papua affirmative program at Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa University,” continued Hanok.
Hanok hopes that the recipients of the ADik scholarship, especially the University of Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa (Untirta) can take advantage of the opportunity, and seriously study over there with the results of completing their studies quickly.
“My expectation for the recipients of the Adik scholarship, especially at the University of Sultan Ageng Tirtayasa, is that as recipients of the Adik scholarship at Untirta we must take advantage of the opportunities that have been given to us by the state as Papuans to hone human resources outside Papua. Therefore, you must study seriously, and finish your studies quickly,” hoped Hanok.
Hanok told about his future plans after graduation. Hanok revealed that he would return to Papua to serve in his hometown.
“After graduation I want to return to my hometown to serve in my own hometown,” said Hanok.
