The Department of Student Residence Affairs in collaboration with the Student Representative Council on UKZN’s Edgewood campus held a Leadership Awards Ceremony aimed at highlighting the importance of leadership within student residences.

Award certificates were presented to various Residence Life Assistants and House Committee Members for their outstanding contribution towards the student governance system through active engagement in the life and management of the student residences.

The ceremony attracted 160 guests, including Residence Life Assistants, members of the House Committee, and other staff members, who were entertained by a variety of poetry, dance and music artists throughout the evening.

Keynote speaker, Residence Life Co-ordinator, Mr Julian King, said: ‘True leaders have integrity which is the very core of their influence. Living the values they believe in is what gives them credibility and allows others to place their trust in them. True leaders are able to say “Do as I do” rather than “Do as I say” because they lead by example.’
