Award ceremony held at Achievement Academy
Students from the Achievement Academy Bridge Program (AABP) at American University of Sharjah (AUS) were honored at the Fall 2018 AABP Student Award Ceremony held December 12. The ceremony recognized more than 40 students who have made significant progress in their courses and increased their language proficiency to a level suitable for study in university-level courses taught in English. The ceremony also recognized students who have shown improvement in their personal, academic and study skills and those who serve as role models for their peers.
Present at the ceremony was Ali Shuhaimy, Executive Director of Enrollment Management at AUS, who congratulated the students on this achievement and wished them well on their transition to their major studies at AUS.
While handing out certificates of completion to the students, Jessica March, the Director of the Achievement Academy, said:
“In their individual way, each of the students has contributed to the academic, sporting and social life of the Achievement Academy community. It has been a memorable semester with many laudable individual achievements. It has been wonderful to see how the students have embraced the learning opportunities that are available to them at AUS.”
The Director’s Award was presented to Hamad Mohamed Al Harmi.
Also present were representatives from the British Council and Amideast, Achieve 3000 as well as AUS officials and faculty members who have impacted the AABP students in one way or another.
The AABP improves student readiness for enrollment into their majors and for the rigors of an academic program of study in higher education. In addition to helping students improve their English language skills, the program also helps students prepare for university math and physics courses, and enhances students' personal, academic and study skills to maximize the likelihood of success in their university experience.
