Dimapur, June 8 (EMN): Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio has written personal letters to the toppers of this year’s Nagaland Board of School Education examinations and all students who have cleared the High School Leaving Certificate (HSLC) examination of 2020.

According to a DIPR report on Monday, the chief minister had written the personalised letters addressed to each of the successful students on May 30.

“He reminded the students to rededicate themselves towards successfully sailing over the forthcoming challenges and also encouraged them to enjoy the experiences, celebrate the joys of life and always aspire to be a contributing member of society,” read the report.

“It takes a tremendous amount of hard work, of more than a decade of school life and many sacrifices, to reach where you are today. We are all proud of you,” he wrote.

The chief minister also referred to the ongoing challenges of Covid-19 pandemic in his letter to the students. He shared that the ‘dynamics of our lives have been altered, forever’.
