The first winner of the Reverend Roddy Dick Memorial Award for Academic Session 2016/17 award is Bethea Shilliday one of our 3rd Year graduating students from the BSc Mental Health Nursing Cohort in Hamilton.
Roddy’s legacy award was created as a prize for the student who best demonstrates excellence and potential in making a difference to the ongoing work in one of the areas Roddy held close to his heart: Learning Disabilities, Faith/Spirituality or Community-Based Interventions.
Year 3 undergraduate students across all Health, Nursing & Midwifery programmes and campuses were asked to submit a mini-portfolio showcasing their work.
Betheas’s submission was based on her work as a volunteer in the Kings Church Café for people in need and the Glasgow City Mission winter shelter. Bethea received her award at the Graduation on Thursday 9th November at 11.00 am at the Town House, Hamilton and Mrs Dick and members of Roddy’s family were in attendance.
