Six distinguished individuals were presented with Honorary University Fellowships at a ceremony held in the Rayson Huang Theatre on September 15, in recognition of their contributions to the University and the community. HKU’s Pro-Chancellor, Dr the Honourable Sir David Li Kwok-po, presided at the Ceremony, which was attended by 300 guests who came to congratulate the recipients.
The six recipients were respected barrister Mr Edward Chan King-sang, SC, prominent hotelier Dr Aron Harilela, celebrated business leader Ms Pansy Ho Chiu-king, acclaimed specialist in Family Medicine in private practice Dr Donald Li Kwok-tung, successful entrepreneur Dr Jimmy Tang Kui-ming and eminent Hong Kong educator Mr Tse Sik-yan.
President Peter Mathieson said in his welcome address: “It is great to see this lecture theatre so full. I think that pays tribute to the importance of the occasion and also to the significance of individuals that we are here to honour. It’s a very auspicious day in the University Calendar. This is the day on which we say thank you to some of our most loyal and faithful and affective supporters. The other reason that we treasure the Honorary University Fellowships is it’s a good example of the interaction between the University and the city and the community – the town and gown. It’s a great opportunity for the University of Hong Kong to recognise some of the citizens of this city which have become associated to the University in various ways.”
Established in 1995, the Honorary University Fellowships were created to recognise and honour those who are held in the highest regard by the University and to establish closer relationships with the community.
