“There is no happier event in academia than to acknowledge and encourage outstanding students”, said Shenkar President, professor Sheizaf Rafaeli, in his opening statement at the excellence scholarship award ceremony for students of the Azrieli Faculty of Design. “We’re proud of the faculty graduates’ accomplishments in exhibitions, competitions and journals. We’re proud to show off these accomplishments, and we’re so happy for the students who are the heart and soul of this process.”

The celebratory ceremony was conducted in the presence of the excited students and their families, the department heads, the dean of the Faculty of Design – professor Yael Moriah, the chair of the board of trustees – Orit Efrati, the chair of the executive committee – Tzvi Yemini, and the guest of honor – Dana Azrieli, head of the board of trustees until 2013 and one of Shenkar’s most important donors.

“I admit that I haven’t been here for 7 years. A long time. And a lot has changed”, Ms. Azrieli said in her speech. “Before I came, I looked at the summary of works that brought you here and I have to say that I was very impressed by your commitment to the topic of sustainability. This is an area that I champion in Azrieli projects and it is very important to me. I’m so glad to see this and also to see the connection to Israeli companies. The idea behind Shenkar was always to connect between academia and industry.”

“Studying here exposes you to the world of academia and theory, and also to the practical world of business. In my opinion, this is truly a gift. I’m happy that I, and we – at the Azrieli Foundation – have the honor of being here with you to celebrate these moments together.”

“If I could give you advice for the future, it’s simply 'don't stop dreaming'. Keep pushing your personal boundaries and the boundaries of what seems possible to the limit, and I’m convinced you’ll succeed in making them all come true. What unifies the students at Shenkar is the ability to persevere and the audacity to dream big.”

During the ceremony, Dana Azrieli was presented with a 3D model of the Azrieli Towers, which was designed and printed at Shenkar’s Keter Plastics Digital Prototyping Center.
