Moment to cherish:Former students and teachers of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya at alumni meet in Ongole on Sunday.

ONGOLE: About 60 former students of the Jawahar Novodaya Vidyalaya, who have made a mark in different streams in higher education, came together on Sunday and provided much-needed inspiration to the present set of students to excel in studies as well as extra curricular activities.

Heart-rending scenes were witnessed as talented past students pursuing higher education in medicine and engineering among other subjects, recalled at the Alumni meet with satisfaction that they with rural background entered the portals of the school lacking in communication skills and gradually made a mark both in studies as well extra curricular activities guided by dedicated teachers.

A former student Rammohan pursing MD in General Medicine advised the present set of students to make best use of the library and computers available in the school.

Another student Nagaraj Naik, who pursued B.Tech in Andhra University campus, stressed the need for honing communication skills by taking part in group discussions and debates, which they tried to skip in those days.

Yet another B.Tech student M Srinivasulu recalled how with rural background he found it difficult to understand when he entered the school and became proficient when he left out of the school, thanks to the committed teachers.

“I was out of touch with my school friends for some time. The meet helped us recall and cherish memorable moments of our school life,'' says Old Students Association secretary Indira Prasad, who is working with a software major in Bengaluru.

They decided to contribute Rs. 1,000 each for providing scholarship to poor students.

They also decided to provide career guidance to the budding students in the future.

School principal K Sagarika welcoming the former students expressed happiness over the students making a mark in life.

“Former students will definitely be a source of inspiration to the present set of students,'' she added.

The students are selected on the basis of merit on all-India basis by the Central Board of Secondary Education at mandal and district levels providing reservation for rural SC, ST, girl and differently-enabled students.
