An institution is not made by mere bricks and stones, but by the strong character and integrity it instills in its students.

I deem it as a privilege to be associated with one of the premier institutions of the then colleges of Madras presidency, presently the Lead College in Prakasam district of Andhra Pradesh VRS & YRN College which was inaugurated by Sri. Bezwada Gopala Reddy in the year 1951. The vision and mission of the great philanthropists of the college, Vidya poshaka sri Vutukuri Ramayya Sreshti garu and the eminent altruist Sri. Yarlagadda Ranganayakulu Naidu garu is evident in the college emblem “UDYATHE NAMAH, UDAYATHE NAMAH, AND UDITHAYANAMAH.”
