We are proud to have a member of our alumni, Kenneth Sng, from Class of 2008, deliver the opening remarks at the second US presidential debate on October 9. In his speech, he spoke fervently about the nature of democracy and the US electoral process, not forgetting to mention Singapore, the country he calls his home.

Despite having a whole list of accolades under his belt, which included being top in cohort in both JWSS and JJC, and being awarded the Public Service Commission scholarship, Kenneth, who is presently a fourth-year economics and mathematics major at the Washington University, and Student Union president, is still very much grounded and appreciative of his roots and the education he has received in Singapore – a testimony to the values he holds dear.

While back on a recent summer break, Kenneth returned to Jurong West Secondary to share with students about the importance of reading and how having good reading habits helped him become more confident in the use of the language.
