Five students emerged as this year's ABC Scholars while just three were inducted into ISERH Ambassadors’ Forum. The three inducted ISERH Ambassadors include: IA Omidiran Oluwatobi Ridwan, IA Michael Oluwadamilare Samuel, and IA Oluwadare Abiodun Emmanuel. Johnson Doris Stella and Abiodun Oluwatosin Odunayo from Reality High School and Bibo Oluwa Academy, respectively, remain an ABC Scholars.
For anyone to be inducted as an ISERH Ambassador, he/she must have proven himself/herself worthy of such task. He/she must be upright and be ready to account for all his/her actions. He/she must be ready to abide by the Rules and Regulations of the Forum, which must have been read, interpreted and understood by the prospective Ambassador, his/her parents and referee. Everyone who makes the cut-off marks of 75% in the Aspiring the Best Competition automatically becomes an ABC Scholar and enjoy the sponsorship of his/her SSCE/UTME by this organization (ISERH).
Sixteen students emerged as the ISERH 2016 Dream Scholars. For every student who has an aggregate score of 69% - 59.5% is pronounced a Dream Scholar. They are the students that have the potential to emerge as the winners and even the best candidate for the competition but couldn’t emerge consequent upon their non-putting in their best. They are then placed on a watching list of the future winners of the competition, encouraged to do better and motivated to put in their best in their future endeavours.
Mr. Oyebisi handpicked 2 students who scored 50% in the competition – Adeyeye Wilson A. and Ajewole O. Rebecca, for his sponsorship of their WAEC. He said that his decision to sponsor their WAEC, despite the fact that their scores in the competition were very poor, was to challenge them to surprise the world and awaken the giant in them. The duo were overwhelmed with joy for being singled out among the 23 Runners-Up (Compensation Prize Recipients) of the competition – who are those who have an aggregate score of 59% - 50%. Mr. Timothy Odion and Mr. Wale jointly pledged to sponsor 2 students’ WAEC while Mr. Oyebisi pledged to add one more student to the list of the students he would be sponsoring for WAEC.

(LSA), a Political Science Lecturer of the Osun State College of Education, Ila-Orangun pledged to sponsor a child for WAEC while he gave out his textbook on Political Science to the Highest Scorer in Government – Ariwonmasa Mabel Olatomide, a student of St. Margaret’s High School, Ilesa.
