BRIEF HISTORY OF HEPSS ‘98’
“HEPSS 98” is a vibrant association that has evolved through stages to this present era.
Having enjoyed a close bond and a wow- moments among naggers coupled with hectic but useful activities we ourselves termed ‘projects’ on campus like weeding, sweeping, dawn scrubbing, washing for school father et cetera task during our Secondary School days and left campus in the year 1998 with youthful exuberance and greater expectations or higher hopes. We found ourselves scattered on different parts of the world and at the time, hooking up with buddies was tough. Thanks to Mark Zuckerberk and Facebook, when in August 2011, some colleagues like Bismark Yaw Asiedu, Tsawoe Innocent, Takyi Gifty, Emefa Dzamefe, Pastor Senyo Bright, Amegbe Elsie, Michael Asamoah, Melody Johnson and some of our seniors as well as juniors met on social media, facebook for the first time after school and immediately got connected and kept exchanging numbers until it grew appreciably.
With technology advancing daily, in 1st Quarter of 2016, buddies decided to hook up on watsapp to check how far and to network .It didn’t take long enough when a greater number of colleagues joined. It might interest you to know that 2016 was the best year the Association recorded its best carols night on 23rd and 24th December. Aaaah it was awesome with Chairman Rooo doing his own thing with Wutah Kobby.

The kind of tolerance, can-do spirit and a healthy competition among members to explore their talents in order to the fulfill their purposes though we do have late adopters in every association.
The association follows its Annual Activities/programs or projects designed by National Organizer in consultation with the National Executive. In 2017, it was able to embark on series of activities ranging from a visit to HEPSS to access state of the school, maiden get-to-together on the founders day (21st September), breakfast meetings/exhortation sessions at Aburi, Thursdays fasting and prayer for ourselves and families, the government and HEPSS.
