Is there a doctor in the house? You bet there is!

PhD. diploma

Churchill Che, Principal of Good Shepherd Academy, just received his PhD in English Literature from the University of Bamenda with a thesis entitled “Orature and Socio-Religious Cohesion.”

He is now Dr. Churchill Che, an honor for which he has worked diligently while brilliantly carrying out his duties as Principal of GSA. Churchill’s achievement is not only a reflection on him but a stellar reflection on Good Shepherd Academy. Congratulations Dr. Che!

He shared, “My PhD studies greatly enhance my work with our GSA students. My focus is on the role culture plays in educating students, as well as on peace and reconciliation, and environmental sustainability, which will help carry the next generation of Cameroonian leaders forward.”

Dr. Che is welcomed to the Fold of Academic Doctors by Sylvester Ndeso Atanga, PhD, Chair of Good Shepherd Academy Association; Nche Zama, MD, PhD, Co-Chair of Good Shepherd Sustainable Learning Foundation; and John Campbell, PhD, former U.S. Ambassador to Nigeria and Good Shepherd SLF Board Member.

And there’s more good news!
