UTAR Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science student Loh Hong Khai received the “Penghargaan Khas Ketua Pengarah Pendidikan Tinggi” award during the Anugerah Tokoh Siswa 2015 for his achievements on the international stage.

Loh has represented UTAR and the country on five different occasions, which are the Procter & Gamble (P&G) ASEAN Business Challenge (ABC) 2013, the Bayer Young Environmental Envoy (BYEE) Programme 2013, the East Asia Final of Go Green in the City 2013 Challenge, the Bosch World Experience 2014, and the 1st SEAMEO (Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization) Youth Leadership Forum 2014.

Anugerah Tokoh Siswa was organised by the Ministry of Higher Education and was held at Universiti Malaysia Pahang on 23 April 2016. This award was introduced in 2013 with the aim of producing wholesome undergraduates who not only excel academically but are also outstanding in the co-curricular sphere. This year, they have extended the award to include private institutions of higher learning and polytechnics.

There were 346 applicants of which only 46 were shortlisted and called for interviews at the Ministry of Higher Education offices in Putrajaya on 3 March 2016. There were 18 awards contested under the categories of leadership and volunteerism. Meanwhile, the special award category was chosen based on their achievements and recognition on the international level.
