The University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Annual Awards 2019 took place on Thursday, 28 November – an evening of glitz, glam and celebration of the outstanding service and achievements of both academic and professional, administrative support and service (PASS) staff. The Long Service Awards was one of the categories in which staff members were recognised and honoured. These awards celebrate the service of staff who have been in the employ of the university for 15, 25, 35 and 45 years.
UCT News asked four of the 13 recipients of the 35-year Long Service Awards to share some of their most memorable moments during their time spent at the university.
