The Richard Feast Award

The Richard Feast Award

TCC has recently awarded a  special Science Prize to Lucy Haggerty. Lucy was the first ever recipient of the ‘Richard Feast Award for Outstanding Contribution to Science’. The prize was set up in memory of much loved Science teacher, Mr Feast who died last year. Mr Feast was famous for saying that if you cut him in half it would say ‘Scientist’ all the way through. It was decided that the prize would be annually awarded to the student in the college whose love and passion for science matched his. The Science Department chose Lucy as the first recipient because since Year 7 she has been a firmly dedicated scientist. Lucy is currently preparing for an interview at Oxford University where she hopes to pursue Chemistry, although she is also interested in Medicinal Chemistry at a number of other prestigious institutions. She will be following in the footsteps of her sister Emily, who is an Imperial graduate currently working for Cancer Research. Lucy is a thoroughly deserving recipient of this Award. She is a highly dedicated student with a passion for Science and a natural curiosity and interest. The prize was awarded by the Chair of Governors, Mr Colin Parton, who commented that in all the history of Nobel Prizes awarded for Chemistry there have been only 4 who are female. We are all looking forward to Lucy making this 5!

Congratulations Lucy, Mr Feast would have approved.
