Farewell to Amohelang Boyce and Philip de Villiers

Some tears were shed on Friday, 28 January 2022, as Library and Information Service staff bid farewell to two colleagues: Ms Amohelang Boyce (Figure 1) and Mr Philip de Villiers (Figure 2).

Amohelang, a person with grace, was praised for her dedication and persistence in completing her work. Amohelang has accepted a position at another university.

Philip de Villiers retires after 12 years of service to the Library as head of the Metadata Management division (formerly Cataloguing).  Philip’s kindness and care towards his staff was highlighted. Philip shared his motto that “happy staff are productive staff”.

The Library wishes Amohelang and Philip well.
