Jonathan Jansen Nominated for Lead SA’s Hero of the Year Award

Letters to My ChildrenJonathan Jansen, Rector and Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Free State and author of many books, including Letters to My Children: Tweets to Make You Think, has been nominated for Lead SA’s Hero of the Year Award.

On his Lead SA nomination page many of Jansen’s achievements are mentioned as reasons for his being a Lead SA hero, for example: “Prof Jansen’s vision for transformation through education is both demonstrated and taught to others. He leads and helps others be better leaders, drawing on his own past he helps others choose their future rather than be defined by their circumstances or past.”

You can vote for Jansen as Hero of the Year on his Lead SA nomination page.

There are those people in every family, school, community and in each of our lives who make a difference. Whether they ease a difficult life or inspire a young mind, these are heroes in the lives of those who they touch. And now it is time to recognise the impact that they have.

LEAD SA Heroes is a campaign that asks South Africans to nominate the people who bring positive change to their lives or communities. The award seeks to acknowledge those that can demonstrate the principle of Lead SA – to inspire a shared vision, to model the way, to enable others to act, to challenge the process and to celebrate the success.
