MOT South Africa’s 10th AGM and Awards Ceremony #Courage2Conquer
MOT SA held its 10th Annual General Meeting on 2 July 2019 at the Old Mutual Building in Pinelands and it was a huge success!
Young MOTivator, Cheslyn Rippenaar lead the audience with the South African anthem.
MOT SA Chairperson, Professor Eltie Links opened the AGM, followed by the presentation of the 2018 Annual Report by MOT SA Country Director, Julia Duminy.
The guest speaker of the event was Dr Patricia Jacobs, Educational Psychologist at the Institute for Post School Studies from the University of Western Cape (UWC) and trained MOT Coach. She spoke about the Courage2Conquer and how important MOT’s values and principles and such interventions are for the holistic development of our youth.
Another success of this year’s AGM was MOT SA’s Awards Ceremony to celebrate MOT excellence.
We had the privilege to announced the winner of our prestigious Are Hovstad Award that is in honour of who Are Hovstad was and the impact he has had on MOT and the youth. The Are Hovstad award was awarded to a MOT Coach who whole-heartedly displays similar characteristics of our beloved Are.
The four catergories were:
MOT TVET College Campus of the Year
MOT School of the Year
MOT Coach of the Year
Are Hovstad Award 2019
The Winners of each catergory:
Wenche Hovstad reflected on the life of humility that our beloved Are Hovstad has lived. She recalls that when Are was knighted by HRH King Harald of Norway for his work, he said that he now has a responsibility.
Christine Thomas, MOT Coach and MOT Coordinator from False Bay TVET College, Fish Hoek Campus won the Are Hovstad Award.
Christine received the award as she portrays the MOT values: Courage to Live, Courage to Care and Courage to say No, in her daily life and in her interaction with others and continually displays the following:
Living life by being herself and by being proud of who she is
Shows respect for herself and others
Cares for herself and others
Spoke out when it was most needed
And above all, stood by her values
MOT sadly bid farewell to Northlink TVET College as a partner. We are grateful for all your hard work and valuable contribution to MOT and the positive impact and experience you have created for the youth at your College. You will be missed!
