Kent Law Campaign Student Group Chair wins The Chancellor’s Prize

We are delighted to announce that the Chair of the Kent Law Campaign Student Group, Hannah Bignell, has been awarded the prestigious Chancellor’s Prize for her outstanding dedication to the Kent Law Campaign at the recent Employability Points Scheme Rewards Ceremony.

On Friday 31st May, the Employability Points Scheme held their annual rewards ceremony at the Colyer-Fergusson Music Hall on our Canterbury campus.  The event celebrated our students’ engagement in extracurricular activities which help them to stand out to prospective employers and was attended by many students, senior staff, corporate sponsors and friends of the University.

The Chancellor’s Prize is awarded to a student who has demonstrated outstanding engagement in a University initiative and was presented by the Chancellor of the University of Kent, Sir Robert Worcester, and Tomas Christodoulou from Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

Hannah has shown exceptional dedication to the Kent Law Campaign having established the Kent Law Campaign Student Group at the start of the academic year and represented the University’s student body at many high profile Campaign events.  She led her committee exceptionally well and raised over £7,500 for the Campaign during her tenure.

Of her achievement, Hannah said: “It was an absolute honour just to be nominated for the Chancellor’s Prize and I never thought I would actually win! It meant so much to have such significant recognition of all the work I have done this year. Such a fantastic end to my time at the University of Kent.”

The Kent Law Campaign would like to congratulate Hannah on being awarded this prestigious prize and thank her for her commitment to the Campaign over the past year.
