Scholarships totalling £22,500 awarded to seven former Teesdale School students
AWARDS totalling £22,500 have been made to students heading off to start life at university.
Seven Mewhort Scholarships were given to students who completed their A levels at Teesdale School, Barnard Castle.
The scholarships, established in 1997, are the result of a legacy from Phyllis Mewhort, a local resident who wished to support the school, which is overseen by a group of trustees.
The top award of £4,500 over three years went to Wild Diment, who is to study chemistry at Oxford.
Six awards of £3,000 over three years went to: Jessica Trevett, who will be studying medicine at Hull York Medical school; Jack Holguin, who will be studying physics with theoretical physics at the University of Manchester; Daniel Dowson, who will be studying biochemistry and molecular medicine at the University of Nottingham; Harry Madgwick-Lawton, who will be studying English at Queen Mary, University of London; Connie Bettison who will be studying English literature at Durham University; and Richard Greensit, who will be studying accounting and finance at the University of Bangor.
Teesdale School co-principal Simon Maguire said the students had been interviewed by a panel before the awards were made.
“We are really grateful for the scholarships. With student budgets so tight, it is nice for them to have that fincancial cushion.”
