HKBU Recognises Four Distinguished Alumni at The Fifth Distinguished Alumni Award Presentation Ceremony
The Fifth Distinguished Alumni Award (DAA) Presentation Ceremony was held at the University’s 62nd Founders’ Day Reception on 9 March to recognise four distinguished alumni for their professional or scholastic achievements and immense contributions to the University and the community. The four distinguished alumni are Mr. Ronnie Cheng (Education Studies), Dr. Eddie Chui (Chemistry/Chinese Medicine), Ms. Kitty Lun (Communication) and Mr. Patrick Siu (Geography/Communication).

In his welcome remarks, Chairman of the Council and the Court and Chairman of the DAA Selection Committee Mr. Cheng Yan-kee expressed that the recipients had shown the value of well-rounded education and how a caring, creative and global culture had prepared them for the ever-changing globalised world. He also commended the four alumni as wonderful role models for HKBU students.

The Presentation Ceremony was kick-started by a stunning video highlighting the success and insightful sharing of this year’s DAA recipients, followed by trophy presentation to each awardee by Chairman Cheng and President Prof. Roland Chin.

The Distinguished Alumni Award is a major annual event of HKBU. Its success owes to the support from the nominees, nominators and supporters, as well as the continuous participation of alumni and staff. The University is thankful to the members of the Selection Committee for their valuable comments and efforts made during the selection process.
