A Message from AUAF President, Dr Kenneth Holland:
“We are pleased to welcome all of you today for the presentation of our President’s Awards. The President’s Awards honor students at the American University of Afghanistan who have distinguished themselves by their high academic performance and their exemplary conduct. We are proud to recognize these dedicated scholars for their hard work and their commitment to their studies. They are outstanding representatives of our university.
While we honor these students for their accomplishments, it is also important to remember that assistance and encouragement from parents, family members, and other supporters is partly responsible for the academic achievements we recognize today. We thank and congratulate all those who played a part in our students’ success.”
