Nalgonda: Avula Satish has proved that financial and social problems would not deter students from excelling in education if one had dedication to achieve goals. Overcoming all the odds, he secured 10/10 GPA in SCC results released on Wednesday.

Sathish, a native of Inupaluma village in Kethepally mandal, took shelter in BC welfare hostel and got cent percent marks on par with other students from well-established schools.

His father Avula Chandraiah (50), who is a shepherd, lives in a small hut. Mother had deserted the family when he was young. On the advice of an educated villager, he joined Satish in the BC welfare hostel when a correspondent of a private school (Sarsawathi School) came forward to offer education free of cost.

On hearing about the result, District Collector Gaurav Uppal called him to his office and presented a dictionary. He also assured to provide a free seat to Satish in an intermediate college. He also said that a double-bedroom house and a sheep unit would be allocated to the family of Satish.

Speaking to Telangana Today, Satish said his hard work and preparation plan helped him achieve the grade. He made it clear that nothing would stop you from becoming successful if one has the dedication and strong desire to reach goals. His aim was to become a doctor, he added.

Yadav Employees Association district associate president Parala Paramesh assured that they would also help Satish in continuing his studies. Students like Satish would stand inspiration to the poor students, he maintained.
