Dr the Hon LAM Ching-Choi delivered an address at the Ceremony on behalf of the honorary fellows and expressed their gratitude to the University for conferring upon them the honour. Dr Lam is pleased to be part of the Lingnan family. He pointed out that Lingnan University’s liberal arts education, which is informed by the best of Chinese and Western traditions, is time-honoured and the fruit of the collective efforts of numerous educators. He also encouraged all Lingnanians to carry the torch of the Lingnan heritage and pass on the “Lingnan Spirit”.
Dr Lam said, “Throughout the changing times, Hong Kong has risen to global prominence, facing more and more opportunities and challenges.” He encouraged everyone to pull in their efforts and set great examples that the younger generation could emulate, like what the outstanding awardees had done.
