On behalf of the Comdt and the members of the faculty, and on my own behalf, I would like to speech about some nice memories of my beloved colleagues at their farewell party. It is very sad to say that my colleagues are going far from us and join another college. However, I am very happy also for his success and join another college as DS. GMATT Members and their works would always be in our heart forever. I really liked and enjoyed their friendship for two years and never know how the two years have gone. Now the happy moment has been over and we are here today for their farewell. It is not believable that we have spent lots of nice time with them however it is very true that it’s really been long.

GMATT Members are very much liked by the students because of their nice behavior, disciplined nature and way of dealing with them. They become always full of ideas and things as well as keep themselves up-to-date which makes them different than others. In the early days of their joining, it took some time for me to understand them. They taught students in their own way and what they need. They always helped us in our difficult times and made us able to face more difficult situations. GMATT Members are the men with combination of energetic, enthusiastic, honesty, love, disciplined, and inspirational for all the students. They have left many memories in my mind which makes me happy. I never forget Ghana coffee with them in the mess. Lastly, I want to say that I would be grateful to you forever for your encouraging and inspiring company.
