Master Kelvin Odartei Cruickshank, a pupil of the Chantan M/A Basic School, who just completed his BECE examination, marveled the world when he manufactured his own stylish sports car. The process took the fifteen (15) year old three (3) years to complete and would perhaps be the youngest Ghanaian to have manufactured his own car.
The National Students’ Awards secretariat upon recognizing the great strides made by the teenager nominated him as the Basic School Personality of the year.
Presently, voting is ongoing for the awards and you can support Kelvin by voting for him using the below link:
