Society prize for Cumbria student

A University of Cumbria graduate has won a prestigious prize from the British Psychological Society. Ernest Wagner, a BSc Applied Psychology student, will be handed the Society's award for achieving the highest grades on his course.

Mr Wagner is to collect his accolade during four days of graduation ceremonies for scholars at the learning institute, which will take place between July 17th and 20th at Carlisle Cathedral.

Friends and family have been invited to support the students, with Mr Wagner's particular prize-giving occurring on Wednesday July 18th at 12:00 BST.

He will be joined by fellow high-achieving scholars from a number of subjects over the four-day event, including sport, art, business, education, health and nursing.

Also in attendance will be special guests receiving honorary fellowships, such as former England rugby union captain Stephen Borthwick, radio industry professional John Myers and David Gould, who will be recognised for his contribution to the campaign for peace and community cohesion.
