A Gathering of Excellent Minds
The College’s High Table Dinner-cum-Scholarship Presentation Ceremony was held on 11 November 2015, in recognition of its students’ academic excellence and outstanding performance in areas such as creativity, community services, sports and leadership activities, moral character and contributions to the College. Prof. Samuel Sun, Dr. Tzu-leung Ho and Mrs. Stella Ho presented 152 scholarship awards to the College’s distinguished students.
Before the ceremony commenced, Dr. Tzu-leung Ho recalled the arduous trail-blazing founding of S.H. Ho College, and thanked Master Samuel Sun, who had been leading the College staff to build the College to today’s scale. Dr. Ho further encouraged students to pursue excellence. Lam Ka Wai, the recipient of Dr. and Madam Tzu-leung Ho Scholarships for Distinguished Medical Students and representative of the scholarship recipients, proceeded to the lectern and expressed sincere gratitude to the College, donors, families and friends, especially Dr. and Madam Tzu-leung Ho and Master Sun, for their unconditional support during their studies at CUHK. Lam Ka Wai added, ‘The titles we obtained today shall by no means signify the end of our pursuits of excellence. Instead, with great ability comes great responsibilities. We should therefore work even harder and not refrain ourselves from contributing to our College, University and community should there be such chances.’
