Huge congratulations to Jemma Collins, winner of the 2012 Sky Bob Friend Memorial Scholarship. It is a major achievement and I know everyone in the Centre will join me in expressing our pride in Jemma's succcess. We will, of course, have the opportunity to celebrate together at Alex Crawford's Bob Friend Memorial Lecture on 21 February at which Jemma will receive her award from Rob Kirk, head of editorial development at Sky News. Very many thanks also to the four excellent runners up, Lydia Deichmann, Sam Thompson, Bill Topping and Kieran Watkins. This year's entries were particularly good and competition was intense. Members of the interview panel were immensely impressed by all the shortlisted students. We are proud of you.   



Congratulations Jem!
