Lisa Hobson, 17, from Weston-super-Mare was nominated for the award after achieving high grades throughout her time at College and even undertaking additional reading and online courses in the subject. Due to her hard work she is set to achieve D*D*D*, the highest possible grade.

Lisa, a former student of Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College said,

“Science has been a passion of mine from a young age; I have always had a fascination with the unusual, a curiosity for the unknown. I think this has always been behind my drive to work hard and dedicate myself to achieving my best; to be recognised for this is such a privilege - after all, the work I put in is motivated by my love of science. Since starting College, my aspiration to do well has increased and having such supportive lecturers has spurred me on to achieve my absolute personal best. I see every new assignment as a chance to expand my knowledge and ultimately shape my future in forensic science. I am extremely grateful for the opportunities I’ve had during my time at College and being nominated for this award is definitely the icing on the cake after a satisfying two years.”

Kirsty Stainsby, Programme Manager said,

“Lisa is an outstanding student who has achieved 10 units at distinction grades and is on target to complete the remaining eight units at distinction level as well. I believe she is a role model to others, with her perceptive and insightful approach which she willingly shares with others in her group in a concise and intuitive way. She has a strong work ethic and always hands in her assignments to the best of her abilities and on time.”
