Two students from the new city are thrilled to have won scholarships for outstanding academic achievement in their university studies.
Both Jordan Smith and Nathan Caesar have been awarded a £1,000 scholarship each by the University of Worcester’s Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive, Professor David Green.
Twenty-one-year-old Jordan, who attended Shenley Brook End School, is in the third year of a Drama and Performance degree at the University of Worcester and has recently started running an after-school drama club in a Worcester school.
Jordan said: “I am honoured to receive this scholarship and so thankful to the University of Worcester for giving me with the award. Drama has always been a passion of mine and to be awarded for doing this course is just fantastic.”
Nathan, a former Denbigh School pupil, is studying Sports Development and Coaching at the University of Worcester.
The 19-year-old said: “I am extremely happy that I am being praised for my academic achievement in a career path that I have long dreamt about. This award will increase my efforts to work high up in the sports development area doing something I love as well as making my family and girlfriend proud.”
