The School of Communication (SCOM) held the SCOM Awards cum Rotary Club of Mandarin HK Scholarships Presentation Ceremony on 2 December 2021. Four important academic awards, including the Dean’s List and Honour Roll awards, and three Rotary Club of Mandarin HK Scholarships were awarded to more than 120 students who earned outstanding achievements in the academic year 2020/21. Professor Scarlet Tso, Associate Vice-President (Communications and Public Affairs) and Dean of the School of Communication; Mr Keith Chow, District Governor of Rotary International District 3450; Mr Kenny Chue, President of the Rotary Club of Mandarin HK; and SCOM Professors served as award presenters, while other members of the Rotary Club of Mandarin HK, faculty members of SCOM and family and friends of the awardees cheered and witnessed the joyous moments of the awardees in the audience.
The Rotary Club of Mandarin HK once again generously donated 3 scholarships of $10,000 each to SCOM this academic year. Ms Hin-ching Wong of the Bachelor of Journalism and Communication (Hons) (BJC) Programme, and Mr Ho-ting Fong and Mr Wai-hei Tsang of the Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Convergent Media and Communication Technology (BA-CMCT) Programme, were selected to be the recipients of this year’s scholarships for their outstanding academic performance and distinguished service records.
The ceremony is held annually to recognise students’ hard work and celebrate their accomplishments in their studies and social service; this year, SCOM also took the opportunity to showcase the artistic talent of its students. A team of BJC students and a team of BA-CMCT ones charmed the audience with their performances of the Mandarin song “追光者” and the English song “Count on Me” respectively during the Ceremony.
As this academic year marked the 10th anniversary of SCOM, the Rotary Club of Mandarin HK kindly gifted the School a birthday cake on this occasion, and a special cake-cutting ceremony was held in conclusion of the ceremony, with guests and students singing the Happy Birthday Song to SCOM.
