Condolence to Ismail Nur family

Condolence to Ismail Nur family


We were deeply shocked by the death of Dr. Ismail Nur Dirie. Ismail was born and raised in Jijiga. He started elementary school and Quran in Jijiga. After graduating from high school Ismail went on to Addis Ababa and he enrolled in Haile Salasie University. He was first Somali to graduate in 1958 with Bachelor of Science, Ismail was very well known for his excellence in education at Haile Salasie University. Dr. Ismail won the prestigious scholarship to University of Michigan at Ann Arbor to pursue a Master degree in Microbiology. He came back to Ethiopia to begin working at the Pasteur Institute Laboratory. Dr. Ismail moved to Somalia early 1960 and became one of the most influential, respected, and knowledgeable in both Ethiopia and Somalia in the twenty century. While working Mogadisho as director of central laboratory he won second scholarship in 1968 this time to pursue a second master degree in public health at University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

The pursuit of higher education and the quest for knowledge is what motivated and inspired Dr. Ismail, along with his deep commitment to public service. He always said “without knowledge, there is no clear vision.”  Dr. Ismail was a brilliant young scholar, of his time, and was instrumental in the creation of a number scientific of articles. Dr. Ismail was one of the supporters of higher education and community development projects.
