By committing themselves so wholeheartedly to the achievement of academic excellence, they are following in the very best scholarly traditions of LUMS and laying the foundations upon which they can build successful careers in their respective majors.”
He added that education was the only answer to the current internal and external challenges faced by Pakistan, and that well-educated youth were the need of the hour.
Upon receiving the recognition, one of the achievers said, “This privilege reaffirms the faith that hard work does get recognised and appreciated. It is a big accomplishment for me to be listed among the top merit achievers. All this is due to support from my teachers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank LUMS for providing such platforms where merit and excellence is acknowledged and celebrated.”
