Lingnan University (LU) held its Honorary Fellowship Presentation Ceremony 2021 today (7 October). Mr Andrew Yao Cho-fai, Chairman of the University Council, conferred honorary fellowships upon four distinguished individuals in recognition of their outstanding achievements in their respective professions and valuable contributions to the society.

 

Recipients of LU’s Honorary Fellowship this year are Hong Kong-based Teochew entrepreneur Mr Chan Wai-nam, BBS陳偉南先生, legal expert Mr Simon Ip Shing-hing(葉成慶先生), philanthropist Ms Christina Maisenne Lee(李美辰女士), and advocate for disability inclusion Mr Nelson Yip Siu-hong, MH(葉少康先生).

 

On behalf of the honorary fellows, Ms Christina Maisenne Lee delivered an address at the Ceremony and expressed their gratitude to the University for conferring upon them the honour.

 

She added that despite not all of the fellows were educated at LU, they all demonstrate a love of learning, pursuit of purposeful living and dedication to serving others with their talents. “We are united by the Lingnan spirit of passion, loyalty, perseverance, openness to different ideas and cultures and a readiness to serve,” she said.
