Other pioneers, a former Manager and some Board Members were honored with awards and citations. Some hard working staff and loyal Union members were also rewarded.

A staff of SGCCU, Ms. Leticia Oduro Boatemaa, thanked everyone present on behalf of the Board and Management of the Union. Reverend Emmanuel Mensah said the closing prayer to officially bring the event to a close.

SGCCU was founded in 1968 by Reverend Father Joseph Yeboah for Roman Catholic School Teachers in the Asante Akim District in the Ashanti Region and it operated from the Office of the Head Teacher of the R/C Primary School, Mr. G.K. Yamoah until 2011 when a permanent office was built for its operations.
