In recognition of the generous donation by Mr Ho Tak Sum, MH, in support of its future development, Hang Seng Management College (HSMC) has named a classroom in the S H Ho Academic Building (Block A) after Mr Ho. The official naming ceremony was held on 30 Mar 2017.
Mr and Mrs Ho, together with their daughter, Miss Ivy Ho, attended a luncheon at The Always on campus before the ceremony took place. The luncheon was hosted by Dr Patrick Poon, HSMC Governor, President Simon S M Ho, and Provost Gilbert Fong. President Ho took the opportunity to update the guests of honour on the recent developments of HSMC.
At the Naming Ceremony, Mr and Mrs Ho, and Miss Ivy Ho unveiled the commemorative plaque along with Dr Patrick Poon, President Simon Ho, and Provost Gilbert Fong.
Well versed in Chinese culture, Mr Ho encouraged HSMC, in its promotion of community service, to continue to nurture young talent with the spirit of the “four ontological goals” (to seek the Will of Heaven and Earth; to determine the Fate of the People; to perpetuate the Great Learning of Past Sages; and to usher in Universal Peace for future generations) put forward by the Northern-Song-dynasty philosopher Zhang Zai. President Ho expressed his gratitude for Mr Ho’s generous support and appreciation for Mr Ho’s role as a driving force behind the development of higher education in Hong Kong. President Ho also conveyed his wish to maintain close cooperation with Mr Ho in future.
