GEORGE NEWS - Former Yorkie Jenalee Harrison, a law researcher at the Constitutional Court in the office of the retiring Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke, will attend the prestigious alumni event to be held at the Constitutional Court of South Africa on Saturday 28 May.

She holds a Bachelor of Science degree after majoring in genetics and advanced biochemistry, as well as a post-graduate LLB degree from Stellenbosch University.

The teachers and staff at York are special. I will always be indebted to them for the support and encouragement they provided to me.
