Super student, Ella Pendleton, has won an award for being the best performer on the MSc Hydrogeology course at University of Leeds School of Earth & Environment.
Ella was presented with the award by chief sponsor, WYG Group, at an official presentation evening.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to win this prestigious award,” said, Ella. “It’s been really hard work but it’s great to be recognised in this way.”
Each year students from the university submit their dissertation to be assessed by an external examiner. This year six had been shortlisted to present their project to peers and the examiner.
Geoff Richardson, WYG Environment Director, presented Ella with a £350 cheque and shield. He said: “We are committed to rewarding excellence and contributing to the development of professionals in our industry.
"WYG is proud to continue our support of budding hydrogeologists, and I was pleased to honour the work of Ella and her fellow students when I presented the award at the evening event.”
