Embarking on a degree while working full-time can be extremely challenging in terms of trying to balance work commitments and personal life, with the demands of academic studies.
This has, however, not deterred Union High School member of staff, JP Kruger, from pursuing his dreams and excelling while doing so.
The recent new member recognition ceremony of the Golden Key International Honour Society saw JP being presented with a lifetime membership to this prestige international honour society.
JP, who is employed full-time as a technician at Union High School, is currently enrolled in the North-West University’s distance learning programme and working towards his Bachelors in Education (BEd Degree).
JP was awarded the Golden Key membership in recognition of his stellar academic achievements during his first year of study.
Being an Old Unionite, having matriculated from the school in 2017, JP hopes his accomplishment will serve to give the school’s learners and anyone else who could use it, the inspiration needed to earn a degree while working full-time.
The Union community congratulates JP on his newfound membership to this collegiate honor society.
It just goes to show what can be achieved with dedication, hard work and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to succeed in.
Well done, JP!
