Principal's Message


Principal,Model Degree College,Nayagarh

"Education plays a key role in the overall development of the society. The role of education is definitely not limited to giving and grasping knowledge and theory. The true goal of education transcends much beyond just awarding degree and certificate to the students. As Mahatma Gandhi said, "By Education I mean an all round drawing out of the best in child and man-body, mind and spirit". The ultimate goal of education is the discovery of the meaning of life and the fulfillment of life and all mankind as well as for oneself. The quest of education is knowledge, humanity, culture, wisdom and sharpness but it should be noted that knowledge is not given but earned and character is not granted but cultivated. "
