A Cullompton student thanked Petroc after she was honoured at this year’s The Diana Award ceremony, which celebrated outstanding young people who embody the Princess’s qualities of kindness, compassion and service.
Lucy Jarrett, who studies Business at the college’s Mid Devon campus, was one of only 750 people worldwide to be included on the Roll of Honour for exceptional young people who have had a monumental impact on society and lives of those in their community.
Lucy, 19, was nominated by her lecturer Zoey Arthurs because, despite working long hours and attending college full-time, Lucy cares for her epileptic sister and her sister’s daughter. She also campaigns to raise awareness of epilepsy and to give clear information on how to support an epileptic sufferer. Her sister credits Lucy as a dedicated and hard-working person who always puts others before herself.
“During her time at Petroc she never failed to amaze her lecturers with her motivation, drive and positive spirit,” explained Zoey. “Lucy is an exceptional young person with a bright future ahead of her and is one student that I am very proud of.”
Lucy and Zoey attended the glitzy The Diana Award ceremony on June 29th at Bath University.
“Attending Petroc has been my best learning experience,” said Lucy. “Never did I think I would achieve so much at Petroc; there is so much support available which has led me to be able to grow as a person and achieve amazing things like this award.”
