In his speech, Mr Mason Wu extended his sincere congratulations to all the scholarship recipients on their outstanding academic achievements and personal development.  He pointed out that Lingnan University offers not only a form of whole-person education emphasising academic studies, but also a form of training that helps develop a capacity for critical inquiry, a broad understanding of the world as well as care and contribution to the society. 


In his welcoming remarks, President Leonard K Cheng thanked all donors for their unfailing support to Lingnan.  “Their generous donations to Lingnan over the years have helped us achieve our vision and mission, and more importantly have demonstrated their support of our educational philosophy,” he said.  President Cheng pointed out that award recipients at the Ceremony will become future leaders and innovators, not only for Hong Kong, but also for the world.


This year, the Most Distinguished Student of the University Award went to Miss Wong Tsing-sum, a Year 4 student of Psychology, while the Dr and Mrs James Tak Wu Award for Outstanding Service (Student Award) was presented to Miss Chan Yim-kwai, a Year 4 student of Translation in recognition of their outstanding performance and contributions to the University and the community.
