Sheikh Humaid also lauded the efforts of academic professionals around the country, who play a key role in the success of academic establishments.

Meanwhile , the triplet sisters — Lynn, Farah and Loujain Adnan Thouqan — expressed their happiness with this honour, which has brought joy to their family. The sisters praised the wise leadership’s care and their support for outstanding people living in the UAE.

The mother of the students, Ibtisam Kassab, the administrative supervisor in the Kindergarten section at Al Hikma School in Ajman, told Gulf News: “Praise be to God. Almighty Allah has blessed me with many blessings and joy this week for the excellence of my daughters and for the happy news I received, about the directives of His Highness, the Ruler of Ajman, to allocate three full scholarships at Ajman University to my daughters.”
