Back in July, which seems a very long time ago now, we welcomed our Class of 2013 into the Alumni Association during a wonderfully sunny week of ceremonies at Carlisle Cathedral. Over 1,300 graduates collected their exclusive ‘Class of 2013’ pin badges and celebrated with a glass of wine with their families in the Crown & Mitre hotel.
We also celebrated the conferral of five new Honorary Fellows, they are:
- Jeff Cowton MBE in recognition of his lifelong service to the Wordsworth Trust and his outstanding contribution to the wider museum sector
- Nigel Couzens in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the Energy Coast Campus
- Anne Attwood in recognition of her outstanding contribution to further and higher education in Cumbria
- Malcolm Wilson OBE in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the motorsport industry and business in the Cumbrian community
- Lord Dale Campbell-Savours in recognition of his support to higher education in Cumbria and his outstanding contribution to the economy of West Cumbria.
