Description
  • Dr Liza Wang is known not only for her outstanding achievements in television, singing and Cantonese Opera, but also for her assiduous efforts in working for the good of the Hong Kong community. She was appointed a Hong Kong / Macao Deputy to the 7th and 8th sessions of the National People's Congress (NPC), and to the 9th - 12th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) from 1998 on. In 1981, she was selected as one of the ten Outstanding Young Persons in Hong Kong.

    She has been actively involved in serving the public and in community service, as well as promoting arts projects. She is currently a member of the Executive Committee of the Hong Kong Anti-Cancer Society, Chairperson of the Chinese Artists Association Hong Kong and a member of the Court at the City University of Hong Kong. Apart from continuing to play an active part in the performing arts, Dr Wang is a model of the lifelong learning spirit, being always eager to utilise new ideas and acquire new knowledge.

    She was decorated with a Silver Bauhinia Star by the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong SAR in 2004, in recognition of her outstanding achievement in the performing arts sector, her contribution to community work and her pursuit of lifelong learning. She was the recipient of the Montblanc de la Culture Arts Patronage Award — Hong Kong Region in 2007, and donated the award money to the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra. Dr Wang was also awarded Honorary Doctor of Letters by the City University of Hong Kong, Honorary Doctor of Humanities by the Hong Kong Institute of Education, Honorary Doctorate and Honorary Fellow by The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, University Fellow of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Honorary Fellow by the Vocational Training Council in recognition of her contribution to the community and the arts sector.

    譽滿香江藝壇數十載的汪明荃博士,除了在電視、歌唱及粵劇等方面有卓越成就外,更長期服務社會和國家,積極參與各項公共及社會服務、推廣藝術項目。她首先在1981年被選為「十大傑出青年」之一,再於1988年起榮膺第七屆至第八屆中國全國人大港澳區代表,於1998年起獲委為中國人民政治協商會議第九屆至第十二屆全國委員會委員。

    2004年,汪博士榮獲香港特別行政區行政長官頒授銀紫荊星章,以表揚其於演藝界的傑出成就、熱心公益的貢獻。2007年她再獲萬寶龍國際藝術贊助大獎 (香港區)。她又分別獲香港眾多大專院校頒授榮譽學位,以表揚及肯定她多年來對社會及藝術界所作出的貢獻。計有香港城市大學榮譽文學博士、香港教育學院榮譽人文學博士、香港演藝學院榮譽博士、榮譽院士、香港理工大學大學院士、職業訓練局榮譽院士等榮銜。

    汪博士現時擔任的公職計有香港防癌會執行委員會委員、香港八和會館主席及香港城市大學顧問委員會成員。眾所周知,汪博士於表演藝術的追求精益求精,孜孜不倦。她在百忙中仍肯出任香港理工大學本年度的駐校藝術家,實是本校師生莫大的光榮。
