I join Patricia and others to congratulate Gordon for a well deserved award. I am sure you still have the heart for SICHE and what a better time to have you back at SICHE. It is also fitting that SICHE begin to recognise that as an academic institution, it needs people of such qualification. The status of SICHE can be recognised by having people of such academic qualification and its research output, which everyone knows that SICHE lacks. I submit the following to SICHE; overhaul the senior management and replace the Dean posts with academics with PhD qualification or with Masters degree at least, start advertising lecturer posts with minimum qualification of Postgraduate Diploma, renumerate academics according to qualification and at par or near to what is acceptable regionally at tertiary institutions and create a research culture at SICHE. I believe Dr. Gordon will contribute positively to our only tertiary institution and want to see him move up the ranks of SICHE management. Best wishes and Christmas greetings Dr. Gordon Leua Nanau.
