“Hard work does not go unnoticed, and someday the rewards will surely follow”…And so that day has come For Wisdom Ukpe Udeoka Justin who began his journey with us At SPAN as one of the pioneer students of the SPAN Academy of Jazz and Contemporary Music. After his training, Wisdom served with the foundation for 2 years without pay and even volunteered at SPAN events with the kind of dedication and commitment we can only marvel at. He later became a trainee instructor at the academy.
In 2015, as a reward for his dedication towards the preparation of the prestigious SPAN@10 celebrations, Wisdom was given full scholarship to study and obtain a Bachelor’s degree in Performing Arts at the renowned Lebanese American University in Lebanon.
As he leaves us today to begin his scholarship studies at LAU, we at SPAN will miss him greatly. We appreciate him deeply for his tireless devotion towards our pursuits and we thank him for honoring us with his contributions towards the music academy. We look forward to his future accomplishments in the performing arts.
We would like to specially thank SCOA Nigeria PLC for sponsoring this project. Also Dr Nashat Mansour and Dr. Nadra Assaf of LAU for partnering with us to make it happen.
