University of Brighton student Mary Harrow has received national recognition for her hard work and commitment to geology studies.
The second-year Geology BSc(Hons) student was one of only ten university students from around the country to receive an Institute of Quarrying (IQ) National Students Award.
The geologists-of-the-future were nominated by their universities for their “continuous hard work and passion towards their course, as well as demonstrating strong potential for a successful career in the mineral extractives industry”.
Winners received certificates acknowledging their achievement plus two years free student membership of IQ.
Mary said: “I am delighted to have received this award and to have had my hard work recognised during my studies. I believe this award will highlight my dedication to the subject and benefit me greatly in my future career as a geologist. I am extremely grateful to my lecturers and the Institute of Quarrying for this recognition.”
James Thorne, Chief Executive Officer at IQ, said: “Congratulations to each of the award winners. Your commitment to learning has been recognised and we hope free access to IQ membership opportunities will support both your personal and career development.
“The benefits of IQ membership are second to none. As well as many networking events, there are endless continuing professional development opportunities, plus members receive the industry’s monthly magazine Quarry Management, just to name a few.”
