KNUST Makes History: Yvonne Osei Adobea Becomes First Female SRC President

Yvonne Osei Adobea, a third-year Sociology student, has achieved a historic milestone as the first-ever female president of the Students Representative Council (SRC) at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).

The university, established 71 years ago, has never seen a female president until now. Yvonne emerged victorious in a fiercely contested election, defeating five other contenders with an impressive 8,282 votes. Her main competitor, Abraham Rockson, fell far behind with only 4,568 votes.

This groundbreaking achievement showcases the power of perseverance and determination. Despite facing defeat in last year’s election, Yvonne remained undeterred and decided to give it another shot this year. Her resilience paid off, and she emerged victorious, proving that winners do not give up, and quitters do not win.

Before her election as SRC President, Yvonne was actively involved as a student activist. She passionately campaigned against the abolishment of the University’s Junior Common Room system, advocating for harmony between Unity Hall and University Hall.

The SRC general election at KNUST took place on July 26, attracting significant attention and high stakes. Yvonne’s victory marks a turning point in the university’s history, breaking barriers and paving the way for more female leaders to follow in her footsteps.

Yvonne’s journey to this historic feat began during her time at Serwaa Nyarko Girls SHS in the Ashanti Region. As the first female SRC President from a single-gender school, she has become an inspiring figure for other young women aspiring to leadership roles in academia and beyond.
