Murabi, who will earn his master’s in human resources, embraces the relationships and friendships that have developed along the way the past two years.

"Having a personal relationship with Mr. Hargrave, to me is the fondest memory. I come from a high-power distance culture where students cannot easily talk to the university president, but ECU has a lovely leader, down to earth and actively involved in campus life. That quality is rare among most leaders,” said Mugabi. “The other fond memory is the love, care and support offered to Richard and me by our friend Reggie Whitten. It has been that time in our school life when we have lacked nothing. Reggie is a loving man that everyone needs to meet.”
