Yesterday we heard the wonderful news that three colleagues in the School of Economics have been promoted!
Mrs. Anmar Pretorius is soon to be Dr. Pretorius and has been promoted to senior lecturer. Henri Bezuidenhout and Chris van Heerden are now associate Professors.
All this is the result of a lot of hard work. Students typically see the lecturer in class, but behind the scenes they are also supervising post-grads, acting as examiners and moderators, reviewing papers for academic journals, doing their own research, presenting conference papers and trying to publish articles while doing committee work, commercializing expertise and reaching out to their communities.
Congratulations to all.
