Glowing with pride
It's graduation time and celebrating their many achievements are radiography students from Canterbury Christ Church University who recently graduated at Rochester Cathedral, Kent.
During the ceremony, Hilary Rose (pictured centre) was presented with the Agfa Healthcare Student of the Year Prize by Hazel Colyer, the dean of health and social care.
Hilary was selected as the worthy recipient because of her outstanding academic ability and commitment. As the cohort rep, she regularly supported individuals and organised events, ensuring strong cohesion among members of the group. She also provided support to individuals from other cohorts. Whilst studying, Hilary underwent a considerable operation and managed her rehab around her studying and placement.
Prior to enrolling on the diagnostic radiography programme, Hilary was employed by the English Institute of Sport for Elite Athletes and is still heavily involved in coaching the Olympic women’s hockey team.
Hilary is now working at the Royal Bournemouth General Hospital, enjoying the challenge of working in a busy, friendly department.
Well done Hilary and good luck to all newly qualified radiographers!
