Twelve years after graduating from the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Gillian Wong (CS’05) sets foot again on campus. Currently the Associated Press News Director for Greater China, Wong was one of 10 award recipients at the Nanyang Alumni Awards 2017.
At the awards ceremony held at the Nanyang Auditorium on Oct. 14, 2017, she received the Nanyang Outstanding Young Alumni Award. The award is given to alumni under the age of 40 who have excelled in their respective fields.
Wong said she is grateful for two professors, Dr Mark Cenite and Dr Cherian George, who taught her as an undergraduate. They have “made a difference to my thinking about journalism and the mission that we serve,” she said.
