Winner - Jackie Scholz
“I think I may have been chosen for the Head of College Award in part for the number of years I’ve been in the department and University. These days I guess there aren’t many people who stay in the same job for so many years, but I’ve always been very happy in Psychology and have worked with some really nice people. I couldn’t believe it when I realised that I could be the recipient of the prize. In his talk up to announcing the winner, Ceri had mentioned something along the lines of “when this lady started in the University, things were very different” and I remember thinking that there couldn’t be many other people, never mind ladies, who’d been here as long as me. It was very gratifying to be the recipient of the first ever Head of College Award and to be recognised for my 40 years’ service.”
Jackie Scholz, Secretary Department of Psychology.
