Neelam Kumari of Embee Rosebud Secondary School, Tura, who stood first in the SSLC examinations 2019 conducted by the Meghalaya Board of School Education has brought pride and joy to her family and school alike.
Neelam started her education at the Embee Rosebud School, the school that had its roots in 1991. The Embee Rosebud Secondary School was established in 2004 and has grown from strength to strength with each passing year. The School has been producing excellent academic results every year and this year it bagged the most coveted rank. Out of 50050 students who appeared for the SSLC exams conducted by the MBOSE, Neelam stood first in the entire state of Meghalaya securing 96.16%.
Neelam gives credit to her dedicated parents, Narayan Prasad and Urmilla Devi of Tura, and her caring and guiding teachers for the success that she has achieved. She follows a strict timetable and makes it a point to read the newspapers and watches the evening news daily. Along with her books and extra reading it made all the difference to her brilliant result in the SSLC examinations.
Neelam is adored by her friends for she is a true friend to her classmates. She tries to help her friends to understand difficult concepts especially during the recesses.
She will be joining the KV Tura to complete her Plus 2 where she is going to focus on Science, chiefly in Biology, as she is keen on becoming a doctor and serving society, mainly the poor.
The topper has praised her school for the environment which allowed everybody to find their own areas of interests and achieve success. The credit to maintain this beautiful environment goes to the management of the school headed by Ms Sheila Newar.
She threw in a word of caution to her friends when she said, “We need to maintain a balance between our books and the latest craze called social media which has become the bane of the youth specially.”
Such sane advice coming from a young girl of 15 years tells you a lot about Neelam Kumari. And her alma mater believes that she will conquer many more challenges. Cheers and congratulations to Neelam Kumari!
