20 prominent Ghanaian personalities who attended Opoku Ware SHS

Opoku Ware Senior High School, often referred to as OWASS or Akatakyie, is famous for many reasons. One, being the first Catholic school to be founded in the Ashanti Region. Two, for their Latin school motto Deus Lux Scientiae which translates as God is the Light of Knowledge. And three, for producing some of the biggest Ghanaian personalities.
