Commerce students get their dues

10 May 2004

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Medal: Walt Bruns and Skye Hollis show off the class medals they bagged at this year's Faculty of Commerce awards ceremony.

Class medals and corporate prizes - many came with handy cheques - were the order of the evening when the commerce faculty recently fêted the students who excelled in its 2003 spread of programmes.

Some 110 class medals and 40 corporate prizes changed hands at an awards ceremony last week, attended by students, lecturers and company representatives. The medals and accolades honoured the top students in the faculty's undergraduate and postgraduate courses for 2003.

As usual, a number of students picked up more than one honour. Among the big winners on the evening were Clare Robinson (four corporate awards, including two from the South African Institute of Chartered Accountants [SAICA], and two class medals), Shane Posthumus (five second-year class medals and one corporate prize), Anthony Saunders (three corporate awards and one class medal) and Karen Geldenhuys (two corporate awards and one class medal). In addition, Junaid Seria, who also landed a class medal, received the Actuarial Society of South Africa (ASSA) prize for the best honour's project in actuarial science at a South African university.
