Norhailmi Abdul Mutalib, a 40-year-old science teacher from SMK Jerlun in Kedah made Malaysians proud by winning the prestigious 2021 Princess Maha Chakri Award for his achievements in cultivating Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) studies digitally among students, teachers and the community. As reported by national news agency Bernama, the award is given by the Princess Maha Chakri Foundation of Thailand to dedicated teachers in ASEAN and Timor Leste.

Norhailmi received the award on 29 October 2021 at the Thai Consulate in Penang as the award ceremony couldn’t be held physically this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Usually, the award ceremony is held at the Royal Palace in Bangkok, Thailand.

Speaking to reporters today, Norhailmi commented,

“I was selected to receive the award after submitting nominations last year, where each state had to send two teacher candidates, and eventually my name was shortlisted among the top five candidates.”

The dedicated teacher, who originally hailed from Simpang Empat, Perlis brought home a medal, trophy, certificate and USD10,000 (approximately RM41,535) in cash.
