Mr. Randy is an exceptional student and is in the top 5% of his academic cohort. He takes immense initiatives and ensures that he completes them with perfection. The activeness that he shows both in academics and extra-curricular is truly a great deal of commitment and an expression of his leadership skills. I can attest without a doubt that he will one day be a great leader of this country. I have that much confidence in the working of Mr. Randy.
