Ɔdadeɛ North America Chapter, Inc. is a non-profit alumni organization of the Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School (PRESEC-Legon). PRESEC is a very prestigious all-boys senior high school in Ghana, West-Africa. The school currently holds a record of producing the most doctors in the nation, as well as the highest number leaders in government currently. With our global headquarters of the alumni association located Ghana under the abled leadership of Dr. Ernest Ofori-Sarpong (Global President) and Mrs. Patricia Obo-Nai (Vice President), the North America chapter reflects the successes of the school’s ability to produce world class graduates who are currently taking their places in the corridors of leadership, sciences, business, and the arts around the world.
This chapter models the spirit of excellence while fostering a strong community engagement in the locations which we have a presence. “Ɔdadeɛ ”, which signifies the Baobab tree based on the school’s first location and inception in 1938, is the name given to an alumnus of the school. The organization currently has an estimated of 1000+ alumni within the North America region alone (US and Canada). There are currently 6 regions within the chapter, with leadership over each region to oversee the progress, growth and execution of our Leadership’s vision, mission, and objectives.
After several attempts by multiple individuals who wanted to bring the alumni together as a wholistic organization, the dream was finally actualized on 3rd July 2016 under the leadership of Sir Samuel Addo (odade3 1976).
His tremendous vision and efforts as the first North America Chapter President was crowned by the then Global President, Rev. Dr. Ebenezer Markwei who flew to the US to be a part of the memorable maiden event. Since then, the chapter has shown great strides in growing the alumni network base, while contributing to the developmental efforts of our alma-mater.
