PROF KAMARULZAMAN REGARDS APPOINTMENT AS UMS "TNC" AN HONOUR FOR SABAH

KOTA KINABALU, May 31 (Bernama) -- Prof Datuk Dr Kamarulzaman Ampong regarded his appointment as Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) Vice Chancellor, which was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, as an honour for the Sabah people.

"I'm grateful to God for the appointment as the UMS VC, which is actually a responsibility to bring the university to greater heights. It is not an easy task, but I will do my best," he told reporters at a function attended by the prime minister, Barisan Nasional leaders and government employees in Sabah here today.

Prof Kamarulzaman, 55, did his master's degree at the University of York on a Sabah Foundation scholarship and a few years after that, did his doctorate in biochemistry at the Ohio State University in the United States.

He is the first Sabahan to be conferred a full professor by a local university.
