After 26 years of service in UCT's financial aid offices, Adelaide Rooks is retiring this year on a high note. Rooks was honoured for her long service in the field at the tenth annual Financial Aid Practitioners of South Africa (FAPSA) conference held in Bloemfontein in June.
"I've known Adelaide since my student days," says student financial aid manager Tasneem Salasa. "For many she has been a mother figure, and she's an inspiration to all who know her." Attending the function were (from left) colleague Zahir Baker, Rooks, and husband, Wilfred.
