Economics lecturers honoured

Posted by Johan Fourie on 2009-03-09

The First Year Academy held a prestigious event at Neethlingshof in honour of the top 30 first year students from all the faculties of the University of Stellenbosch. Prior to the event each student had to indicate, in writing, which lecturer they felt had made the greatest contribution to their success during their first year at Stellenbosch University.

From left to right: Elnari Potgieter, ms. Pietie Horn, prof. Rachel Jafta, Calvyn Kirsten, dr. Sophia du Plessis and Mellusca Farnham.

These lecturers were, in turn, invited to attend the dinner and to respond, also in writing, to the students that had nominated them. Three lecturers from the Department of Economics were nominated namely Rachel Jafta, Sophia du Plessis and Pietie Horn. It was a great honour for the lecturers to be recognised in this way as it is not often that lecturers are acknowledged for the work they do or for the impact they have on a student's academic life.
