The Jharkhand Academic Council (JAC) will celebrate its 10th Foundation Day on Monday.
On Sunday, preparations were on in full swing for the function to be held at JAC auditorium in Namkum. Chief minister Hemant Soren will grace the occasion as chief guest. The top brass of the state human resource department will also be present.
This year, in addition to students, the council has decided to felicitate its past chairmen too.
Incumbent chairman Anand Bhushan told The Telegraph: “This is going to happen for the first time in the history of JAC. My predecessors — Laxmi Singh and Shaligram Yadav — will be honoured tomorrow.”
In Monday’s programme, the council will honour 51 students with medals and cash prizes for their excellent performance in matriculation, intermediate, madhyama and madarsa examinations.
Besides, awards will be given to officials of the districts that have secured good results, Bhushan added. Hazaribagh has topped in both matriculation and intermediate in 2013.
Heads of two premier cradles — Residential High School in Netarhat and St Xavier’s College in Ranchi — will also be felicitated for their contribution to education. These two institutes will receive Rs 25,000 each.
“From our side, preparations are on the verge of completion and we are expecting this event to be successful one,” Bhushan said.
