College Captain's Message
01 College Captain's Message 2018-2019


"Leadership is not about a title or
a designation, it's about impact,
influence and inspiration."

It is my privilege to be appointed as the College Captain of St. Joseph's College, Prayagraj for the Academic year 2018-19 and I would like to express my gratitude towards the people who have made this possible. This institution always imparts to her students academic excellence, discipline, morality, individuality amidst team spirit and above all, spiritual values. So, I would like to start by thanking the Almighty for his grace bestowed upon us. Next, I would like to thank our Principal, Rev. Fr. Rolfie D'Souza who has been a paragon of hard work and intelligence.

I would like to say a very special thank you to our honourable Chief Guest of this morning, I.G. Mr. Ramit Sharma. It is an honour to have your here, Sir. I would not have been here if it had not been for the backbone of our College, our teachers and I thank them for their guidance, wisdom, support, timely help and for turning our dreams and aspirations into reality.

I would also like to mention the name of our Former College Vice-Captain Shalabh Singh. Shalabh, I feel that it doesn't really make a difference if I have this badge or you do, the badge stays with one of the brothers and I will be glad if your feel the same way. You have always been by my side and I consider myself blessed that I have a friend like you.

I would also like to take a moment to congratulate my batch mates and my juniors who have been appointed to various posts. I know that we will work together as a team for the prestige of our College. We have our work cut out for us but we will not shrink back from working hard. We will not shirk our responsibilities but will step up to the plate and make sure that the name of our College and it's glory is never diminished but ever increasing.

The things that we have gained from this institution are priceless and it will be impossible for us to pay even a fraction of it back, but now, we have been given the opportunity to see to it that the name of our College remains untouched and to follow the path emblazoned by our predecessors.

I am really looking forward to start my work with all of you, and I don't mean just the office bearers, but all my fellow Josephites. I intend to teach, lead by example and most importantly to learn many things from all of you during these eight months. I am sure we will make a great team and will live up to the expectations of the people around us.

In the end, I would like to say to my team that we need to step forward, work hard and bring about a change for the betterment of not only the College but also our Nation. I assure you that I will do my duties to the best of my ability and will walk beside you in every situation. Let us leave no stone unturned and let us aim as high as we can because 'Semper Sersum, Always Aim High'. At last, I would like to quote Voltaire -

"The price of greatness, is responsibility."
