Stella Clark was an exceptional lecturer in the Centre for Higher Education Development (CHED). After her death in March 2005, family and friends set up the award in her memory to acknowledge her many years of dedicated service teaching students from educationally disadvantaged schools in the Western Cape and at UCT.
This year's joint winners were Kenneth Tshabalala from Lesiba Secondary School in Daveyton, Gauteng, and David de Storie from Harold Cressy High School, in central Cape Town.
The Jameson Hall buzzed with stallholders and students in the annual Careers Service expo for NPOs and civil society in early August. And for the first time the UCT Knowledge Co-op and Poverty & Inequality Initiative (PII) offered supporting events.
