Nelly Jepkoech Cheboi, a 2018 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education(KCPE) candidate, whose agony of lacking school fees was featured by Kass TV has received a full scholarship courtesy of Elgeyo Marakwet Women Rep Jane Chebaibai.
The County Women Rep confirmed through her social media page that Nelly is among five students from Elgeyo Marakwet County who will have their fees fully paid to enable them further their education.
“Due to financial, Nelly’s story was aired on Kass TV and other social media platforms. Therefore I have committed to paying her school fees starting now until she achieves her dreams of becoming a doctor,”Chebaibai posted.
Nelly, who comes from a humble background, was staring at a bleak future even after scoring 411 marks out of the possible 500 in the 2018 KCPE.
She was among the top performers in the county and is set to join Nakuru Girls High School.
