Monrovia — Bill Rogers, a former Liberian international track athlete and the Chief Executive Officer of the Bill Rogers Youth Foundation (BRYF), is set to be honored with the African Achiever Award on July 14. The prestigious award recognizes his significant contributions in improving the lives of young people in both the United States of America and his home country, Liberia.

The African Achievers Awards is an annual ceremony that celebrates African excellence by acknowledging and honoring exceptional individuals and organizations across various industries in Africa. These individuals and organizations have made immense contributions to the growth and development of the continent.

A communication from the African Achievers Awards Reservations Office in the United Kingdom informed Mr. Rogers that the House of Lords banquet hall at the Palace of Westminster, UK Parliament, where the award ceremony will take place, is currently over-subscribed for reservations.

This year marks the 13th edition of the African Achievers Awards, an annual event that aims to recognize outstanding achievements.

During the ceremony, Rogers will share his life-story and the lessons he has learned at the House of Lords banquet hall. Additionally, he will have the opportunity to speak at the International Summit held at the European School of Economics in the United Kingdom.

In an interview with FrontPage Africa, Rogers expressed his honor in representing Liberia and Africa on a global platform focused on youth populations.

“I consider it a great honor and an opportunity to inspire others and make a positive impact. I strongly believe that my consistent hard work, dedication, and passion for my fellow friends have been recognized. I will celebrate this achievement with joy and gratitude and continue moving forward,” Rogers said.

He further stated, “As I travel to the United Kingdom, it is important to remember the significance of this opportunity and the responsibility that comes with this achievement. I should always remain humble and appreciate the support and guidance from my friends and family members, especially Ms. Kenny, the African Achievers Special Representative in Africa, as well as the committee members who acknowledged my experience, work ethic, and story, aligning them with the program’s objectives.”

Rogers emphasized that speaking at the European School of Economics provides a wonderful platform to share his message of hope and inspire others. He aims to encourage young people to develop wisely, respect one another, and strive for personal growth.
