Old boys to give Owo Methodist High School facelift 

Sixty years after its berth, the Old Boys Association of Methodist High school, Owo (MHSO) is set to carry out major rehabilitation and face lift of their alma mater.

 The move is to commemorate the school’s 60 years of existence.

A statement made available to Blueprint Thursday in Abuja by the association Media and Publicity Team for the 60th anniversary, Kasali Obanoyen, said a fundraising event has also been slated for June 2024.

It reads in part: “For the first time in the history of Methodist High school, Owo (MHSO ) a major push is being made outside government, to raise money to help reshape , and rescue the school from its current sorry state of infrastructural decay.

“The push behind this resurgence in rerobing the school is being spearheaded by the Akinola Osuporu led exco members. 

“In its wisdom, and as widely supported, a fund-raising is billed for June 22nd in the school’s auditorium. The whole idea is to prepare for the 60th anniversary slated for the first quarter of 2025. His magnanimity, administrative acumen and managerial ability are the attributes helping him to steer the ship of the association to a successful harbour.  

“The fund raising event therefore comes up as a precursor for the anniversary, where the public is encouraged to support the school,  as the old students worldwide are also poised to plough back to the institution that has helped to define who they are  for most part today.

 “We all hope that the event will evoke a linkage of true feelings of tenderness and nostalgia about MHSO at the time of needs like this, when the 60th anniversary of the school is just around the corner.”
