Coming together is a Beginning, Staying together is Progress and working together is Success’. These words of ‘Henry Ford’ have transformed into reality in the case of ‘The Adoni Arts & Science College’, an educational institution sponsored by the Rotary club of Adoni, way back in 1962, signaling a new Era, not only to provide higher education to the underprivileged in this backward region at undergraduate level, but also to inculcate the skills that go beyond text books, to create a better life for all.
Service above Self’, the motto of Rotary Organization, instills in me so much confidence, pride & happiness, when I realize that each one of us associated with this college, is on the path ahead to take this prestigious institution to the newer heights, which we actually deserve for all our 49+years of remarkable contribution to the institution and the society at large, in moulding our wards into better citizens of tomorrow.
Golden Jubilee’ is a solemn, yet proud occasion. While the institution celebrates its glorious existence over the last 50 years, it is an opportune time to reflect on the past and also plan for the future. Our college has served the student community with great destination. I sincerely believe that we cannot be satisfied with the past and I sincerely hope that the best is yet to come and that the coming years would be still more productive, innovative in providing quality education to the underprivileged. I strongly believe that it is important for all of us associated with this institution either as administrators or faculty, being the torch bearers of this institution to be like the Lamp that diffuses light and warmth on all.
It gives me immense pleasure and makes me feel proud in being associated with this prestigious institution as Auditor of the college in the formative years, later as member of the Governing Body, Joint Secretary and now as Secretary & Correspondent since 2005. My period as Correspondent of this college saw several achievements such as NAAC Accreditation, Award of CPE Status (One of the 149 colleges in the entire country).
