Representative Advisory Councils

In memoriam: Gerrit Hettema

28 Mar 2022 09:41 | Representative Advisory Councils

Last month, we received the sad news that Gerrit Hettema had passed away unexpectedly. Gerrit was a valued colleague who, during his lifetime, dedicated his heart and soul to participation in decision-making, both at the central level and on the Representative Advisory Council of the Faculty of Technology.

For many years, Gerrit was a member of the Finance & Regulations Committee. He worked tirelessly for AUAS employees with a disability. Gerrit was known for his attention to detail, certainly with regard to sentence construction. He was astute and committed, which was also reflected in his sense of humour. Not only will we miss his contribution, we will also miss him very much as a person. He was a valued member in every respect.

During the last meeting, the Council commemorated Gerrit with a minute's silence.
