Inyathelo remembers with great affection and appreciation the late Doctor Richard van der Ross, who generously gave of his time and expertise to our organisation. Dr van der Ross was associated with Inyathelo from 2004 and acted as Chairperson of the Board from 2006 to September 2008.

Dr Richard van der Ross 1921- 2017

During his multi-faceted career, Dr van der Ross was a noted school teacher and principal, activist, newspaper editor, Inspector of Education and Rector of the University of the Western Cape. His commitment, expertise, thought leadership and scholarship influenced many current leaders and his wise counsel will be sorely missed.
