Kenneth Mellanby Hall, the first accommodation hostel in the Premier university of Nigeria, University of Ibadan will today, Thursday July 18th, 2013 hold her 2013 NOTABLE FIVE AWARDS as it marks its 61st anniversary this year.
The idea of the Notable five awards was conceived by the incumbent executive council of the Mellanby hall, University of Ibadan. Mellanby hall is 61 years this academic session; thus the council deemed it fit to honour ‘Mellanbites’ (Alumni) that have been notable and outstanding over the years.
The purpose of the Notable awards is to
•Honour Alumni that have been outstanding in their career and have contributed immensely to the development of the society and the World at large.
•To use these personalities as a motivation and source of encouragement for the present crop of residents of Mellanby Hall, the students of the University and to the Nigerian Youths.
As an executive body, the council made in-depth research into the archives and records of the hall so as to honour the best among bests as they are aware that most of Mellanby’s alumni have been outstanding in their numerous endeavors. After months of thorough research, they came up with 5 personalities that are both notable and consistently outstanding over the years and this list was ratified and approved by the Hall Management committee.
