Stu­dent hon­oured for ded­i­ca­tion to sci­ence

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

A RISH­TON stu­dent was hon­oured with the pres­ti­gious Gover­nors’ Award at Black­burn Col­lege’s an­nual Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion Star Awards cer­e­mony.

Court­ney Beaghan, who achieved fan­tas­tic re­sults in her A-levels (maths A*, ex­tended project A*, physics A, chem­istry A), was recog­nised for her ex­cep­tional mo­ti­va­tion, pos­i­tive at­ti­tude and ded­i­ca­tion to sci­ence.

The for­mer Hyn­d­burn Academy pupil said: “I was re­ally sur­prised to have been se­lected for the award, but ab­so­lutely de­lighted. I have worked re­ally hard over the past two years and ev­ery­thing has paid off.

“I have re­ally en­joyed my time at Black­burn Col­lege and my tu­tors of­fered me so much help and sup­port.”

Court­ney, 18, has just started study­ing a de­gree in Nat­u­ral Sci­ences at Lan­caster Univer­sity and wants to pur­sue a ca­reer in re­search.

Tu­tors high­lighted Court­ney’s en­thu­si­asm to be in­volved in ex­tra cur­ricu­lum ac­tiv­i­ties, how highly she was re­garded by staff and that she was a role model for younger stu­dents pur­su­ing a ca­reer within sci­ence.
