A SOUTH Shields student is celebrating after achieving a first class honours degree.

Evie Gray, from Sea Winnings Way, Westoe Crown Village, will graduate with a degree in history from the University of Worcester, at Worcester Cathedral, in November.

The 20-year-old said she is delighted with her achievement.

“I was over the moon when I found out I’d been awarded a first, but also quite shocked,” she said.

“I was lucky enough to find a niche subject that I loved – women and sexuality in the 20th century – so my dissertation was focused on something that I was very passionate about.

“It’s been an amazing three years.

“I’m very sad to be leaving.

“I’ve made a lot of friends here that I know I’ll stay in touch with for a long time.

“I think I’ll even miss frantic late nights in the library.”

Evie, who wants to become a history teacher, has recently returned from a spell teaching English to children in areas affected by the 2004 tsunami in Thailand.

University of Worce-ster vice chancellor, Professor David Green, said: “This year, more than 250 University of Worce-ster students earned first class honours.

“This is a tribute to their hard work and talent, together with the university’s ability to help students thrive.”
