Jemma has sent a letter of thanks.
"I am writing to say a huge thank you for the
Waterstone’s voucher for £250 you sent me on behalf of the Girls’
High School Old Girls’ Association. It was an incredible surprise and a
privilege to receive.
I was fortunate to have my enjoyment and passion
for Mathematics encouraged and stimulated by some excellent teachers from
Primary School onwards. I am so grateful to these teachers for all their
hard work and encouragement which inspired me to achieve and so enabled
me to study a subject I love at Bath University. I have completed my first
term at Bath and have really enjoyed it. I hope by the end of my first
year to have a clearer idea of what branch of maths I want to continue
in and it is my aspiration that I can go on and complete a PhD in Mathematics
by the time I leave Bath.
Thank you once again for your incredibly generous
gift to me, it is very much appreciated."
At the AGM, members will be asked to
vote on the allocation of Glauert Prize funds to Scarborough United Scholarships
Foundation with the John Kendall Trust if our Association cannot continue.
We hope that a representative of the charity will be present at the AGM.
