A FORMER Cheadle Academy and Moorlands Sixth Form Centre pupil was among almost 100 University of Worcester students to receive academic scholarships earlier this month.
Elizabeth Sherratt, from Kingsley Holt, was awarded the £1,000 scholarship by Vice Chancellor Professor David Green at the brand new University of Worcester Arena at one of two award ceremonies at the beginning of October.
Elizabeth, a second year Sports Therapy student, said: "I feel honoured, privileged and quite surprised to receive this generous scholarship from the University of Worcester.
"It confirmed to me how important it is to be studying a course you really enjoy and aspire to achieve in. I would like to thank all at the University of Worcester for their help."
In all, 98 students were awarded the scholarships, gained through outstanding academic achievement throughout the 2012/13 academic year.
Professor Green said: "We were delighted to be able to award an academic scholarship to Elizabeth and so many other students. The scholarships recognise terrific, high quality and extensive achievement, and it is only right that students who excel here at the University of Worcester are rewarded."
