These awards honor Botho University students, student clubs and alumni who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and service contributions to the University and community. The inaugural awards were hosted in 2019 to recognize students and alumni who excelled in 2018.
We have had yet another eventful 2019 where some of our students and graduates have proved to be exceptional. Some of them have worked closely with the Students & Alumni Affairs Department, some we have admired from afar!
