Keeping up the family tradition

11 December 2006

Grand showing: Saul Nurick, who caps a second degree this week, with grandmother Rachel.

Sixty-four years after receiving her BA degree, Rachel Roditi (nee Alhadeff) will be back at graduation, this time to applaud as her grandson is capped by his father, Prof Gerald Nurick. "What with my daughter's Denise's long history at UCT [MBChB 1977; MMed, and MBA, 2003], and then my various grandchildren, I have kept up with what is happening at UCT, but it is always a pleasure to be back on campus, and this year it is a special delight as it is a father and son affair," says Roditi. Saul Nurick graduates in property studies, an interesting contrast, he says, to his undergraduate degree, a BCom in information systems. "I think it has been an advantage to have a father on the staff; it has certainly made me much more aware of the ins and outs of the university."
