Stella Clark Teachers' Award

Stella Clark was a language development lecturer in the Academic Development Programme in CHED from 1996 until her death in March 2005. Her family and friends have established the Stella Clark Teachers' Award to honour her many years of dedicated service to teaching students from educationally disadvantaged schools in the Western Cape and at UCT.

Each year, UCT students and staff are invited to nominate a teacher who is currently teaching in a secondary school and who, in their opinion, deserves recognition for years of dedicated teaching to students from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.
