Ghana's Premier University Loses First Female Professor of Science
I have known this academician, intellectual and gem since my childhood, when she hosted the 'Brilliant Science & Maths Quiz' on Ghana Television, which was aired every Saturday at 11am. Naive as I was, I kept asking myself "who is this woman at all who exhibits so much brilliance?" In fact she made me went on a date with science but it wasn't for long as I fell for Literature and French later in Secondary school.
The late Professor kicked the bucket in the wee hours of Tuesday 14th January, 2014 at the age of 72 after a short illness. The deceased launched her memoir (Rewards) last year.
Professor Addy has received many awards including:
The Millennium Excellence Award for Educational Development at the turn of the
UNESCO Kalinga Prize for the popularization of science in 1999;
The Africa-America Institute’s Distinguished Alumna for Excellence in 1998;
Marketing Woman of the Year, in 1995, for marketing Science.
Prof. you've indeed served your generation and will be remembered by all.
