Adiq was crowned the “Asian King” for be­ing the con­ti­nent’s best cy­clist in last year’s Le Tour de Langkawi.

Bulkhari came in 11th out of 126 rid­ers at the World Eques­trian En­durance Cham­pi­onship race in Sa­marin, Slo­vakia, last year.

Razif added that life should be like a good seed, which if tossed into a sea, will be­come an is­land; if hurled into the sky, will be­come a star; or, when thrown onto the ground, be­comes a tree that bears fruit and pro­vides shade. 9, — who were sit­ting in the back seat, were in­jured. Dar­wish and Damis sus­tained se­ri­ous in­juries and were warded at the Sul­tanah Nur Zahi­ran Hos­pi­tal here.

They have since been wheel­chair-bound.

Noor Amalia was teach­ing at SK Sul­tan Ismail while Badrul was work­ing in SK Bin­jai, both in Ke­ma­man.

The same award was also given to Ka­maruza­man Yusuff, the late Rosdi Mo­hamad Salleh and the late Masni Ngah.

For­mer science teacher Hamzah Oth­man, who re­tired in 2010, was cho­sen as the Tokoh Guru 2017.

Hamzah was among the first batch of grad­u­ates of Univer­siti Ke­bangsaan Malaysia in Bangi, Se­lan­gor, in 1974.

“Teach­ing is, and will be, in my blood no mat­ter whether I am a sim­ple teacher or an ex­cel­lent one.

“I will con­tinue to teach on an ad hoc ba­sis when­ever nec­es­sary, and when­ever time per­mits,” said the fa­ther of six, who used to teach at SMK Sul­tan Man­sor, Marang.

Tereng­ganu has or­gan­ised pro­grammes on lead­er­ship de­vel­op­ment, en­trepreneur­ship and skills to the tune of RM65.7 mil­lion.

The RM20 mil­lion Youth De­vo­tion Fund would ben­e­fit 100,000 youths in the state.

Ad­di­tion­ally, RM5,000 has been al­lo­cated to 421 reg­is­tered and ac­tive youth branches to ben­e­fit the grass­roots.

“The state gov­ern­ment is de­ter­mined to ease the high cost of liv­ing, of­fer job op­por­tu­ni­ties and pro­vide ad­e­quate hous­ing for the peo­ple,” said Razif.
