Ten out of 10 for Nurick clan

12 December 2012

Saul NurickDouble digits: Saul Nurick will be hooded by his dad, Prof Gerald Nurick, on 17 December, his 10th family hooding.

When Saul Nurick graduates with his MPhil in property studies on 17 December, it will take his family tally of UCT qualifications into double figures.

And for his father, Professor Gerald Nurick of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, it will be the sixth time that he will have the privilege of hooding a family member.

Nurick senior has hooded his wife, Dr Denise Roditi, business manager in the Division of Chemical Pathology. He did likewise twice for his youngest son Simon, and once for daughter Jessica. December will mark the second time he will drape a hood around Saul's shoulders.

Unfortunately, he couldn't hood himself when he obtained his PhD - the first of the family's 10 hoodings - in 1987!.
