SINGAPORE: Nanyang Technological University (NTU) recognised 23 of its alumni members on Saturday evening in an award ceremony to celebrate achievements in their respective fields.
Acting Culture, Community and Youth Minister Lawrence Wong gave out the awards.
The recipients included Major Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono, son of Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono; artiste Lee Teng and Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Home Affairs Masagos Zulkifli.
The Nanyang Alumni Awards was launched in 2005.
Mr Masagos said: "As a student, (there were) lots of studies, lots of mugging, preparing for examinations, projects, but apart from that, NTU also provided a lot of opportunities for students to pursue other non-academic areas.
“It is also my hope that as we continue to pursue our careers, we do not forget to give back to society." - CNA/nd
