Mahalie gifts former school with English Laurel Floating Trophy awards
By Martha Nangombe
MULTI-award winning fashion stylist and Forbes 30 Under 30 nominee, Reinhard Mahalie has emphasised the importance of educational growth.
Speaking at the inaugural presentation of the Reinhard Mahalie English Laurel Floating Trophies, Mahalie reiterated the importance of education among young people.
Mahalie, a former Deputy Head Boy at P.K De Villiers Secondary School in Keetmanshoop, gifted his former school with trophies, which he said are meant to recognise pupils who demonstrate great language ability, skill, and linguistic devotion.
In an interview with Confidente, Mahalie discussed his vision, the value of giving back to the community, and the importance of education among young people.
“It was 12 years ago that I strolled through the aisles of P.
K. De Villiers for the last time. I had no idea that part of my calling would reverberate through these corridors and that my work would find meaning here, or that my chosen path would lead me to education development. As a prolific figure in the fashion and entertainment industries, my goal with this initiative is to give back to the school and community at large.
“My hope is that I can encourage and motivate learner to excel in their studies and turn our Alma Mater into a hub of educational brilliance,” he said.
