TEARS flowed freely as four orphans of a schoolteacher couple killed in a road accident received a posthumous prize for their parents’ contributions.
Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman paid tribute to the services of teachers Noor Amalia Noorzan, 34, and her husband, Badrul Hisyam Omar, 41.
The duo were posthumously awarded the “Education Director’s Special Award” during Teachers Day celebration at the state indoor stadium in Gong Badak, Kuala Nerus.
“This award is to remember the sacrifices and contributions of teachers like them for their dedication to educational excellence.
“They were role models who played a crucial part in imparting knowledge to children.”
Noor Amalia and Badrul Hisyam were killed when the vehicle that Noor Amalia was driving collided head-on with another vehicle coming from the opposite direction at Km41 Jalan Kuala Terengganu-Kuantan in Marang on April 22.
