At the Ceremony, President Leonard K Cheng thanked all donors for their unfailing support to Lingnan University over the past years. "We look forward to scholarship recipients' successful development in Lingnan's liberal arts environment and many contributions to our community in the future. I hope that the recipients of scholarships today will help future students who need guidance. That is part of our Lingnan spirit," said President Cheng.
