The Central University of Technology (CUT) has ho-noured Teboho Loate, presenting him with the chancellor’s excellence award at a recent ceremony.

Dan Maritz, spokesperson of the university, said Loate became the first candidate ever to be bestowed the award by the institution.

“Loate was nominated as the inaugural recipient of the chancellor’s excellence award in the category of leadership and community involvement. This is for his proven capacity to guide and motivate others to excellence and his commitment to improving and ser­ving the regional community,” said Maritz.

He said Loate, who has always been part of the institution’s family, played a role in CUT and its development.

“In 1999 he was appointed by the late Prof. Kader Asmal as ministerial appointee on the CUT Council. He served as the chairperson of the council from 2000 to 2010 and was later reappointed by Minister Naledi Pandor as CUT council member until 2014,” said Maritz.

Loate dedicated the award to his fellow councillors, saying they shared their professional lives, valuable family times and knowledge with CUT.

“This award is not mine alone, but a collective piece of work by men and women who did not count their contributions, but provided their services selflessly. I must foremost point to the efforts and dedication of these men and women, who today may seem like unsung heroes and heroines. I salute all of them, as we today witness the fruits of their labour.”
