Twenty-nine members of staff were selected to attend an evening reception and dinner which was held on Wednesday 5 December. Professor Sue Frost: Pro Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs, welcomed attendees and presented special commendation certificates to three members of staff who were prize winners in 2006.
Our Vice-Chancellor Professor Bob Cryan presented prizes designed by students from the School of Art, Design and Architecture to five members of staff who the panel judged to have extra special endorsements from their nominating students. Our 2007 finalists were; Karen Currell, Denis Feather, Jonathan Glazzard, Dr. Gary Midgley and Karen State
A further 21 members of staff received certificates and Extra Mile Award plaques which were presented to them by their nominating student.
The event was organised by Lisa Ward and Jane Gaffikin and was superbly catered for by BA Year 2 and HND Year 3 Hospitality students, undertaking the Gastronomy option.
