“I know that among the valedictorians commended today, many of them have volunteered to participate in the Covid-19 prevention and control, especially during the time the city was placed under restrictions,” the mayor added.

He expressed his hope that each valedictorian would promote the youthful spirit of volunteerism, exerting efforts in raising the intellectual level of the people and the strength of the country as well as making important contributions to the cause of national construction and defense.
