A Myerscough College floristry tutor has been recognised with a special teaching award – voted for by her students.
HE tutor, Sam Cook, has been presented with a ‘We Heart U’ award – a student lead teaching awards scheme organised by Myerscough, in association with our higher education partner, UCLan. Nominations for the awards are open throughout the year and give students the chance to publically recognise members of teaching or support staff who have gone beyond the call of duty.
Hannah Mason, UCLan Student Union Media Officer, was on hand to present Sam with her award as part of a surprise presentation. She said: ‘’Sam goes above and beyond to help her students. Her nomination describes her as outstanding, enthusiastic and passionate.
‘’One student even said they didn’t think they could continue their studies if it wasn’t for her. She’s always contactable and drives her students to be the best they can be. Sam is a credit to Myerscough College.’’
