RHS Success for BMC Students
Two students at Brooksby Melton College (BMC) have done incredibly well in their Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Examinations, both being awarded with two top RHS awards for scholarly excellence.
BMC delivers courses designed by The Royal Horticulture Society. RHS is the UK’s leading gardening charity dedicated to advancing horticulture and promoting good gardening. They are a nationally recognised awarding body that offers a range of accredited qualifications for both professional horticulturalist and keen gardeners.
Sarah Morley, who completed the RHS Level 2 Certificate in Horticulture last February, has won The Centenary Prize. This prize is given to the student who has attained the overall highest score in any academic year for the RHS level 2 Certificate in Horticulture.
Christine Hammond, who also completed the RHS Level 2 Certificate in Horticulture last February, has won The Anne Menhinick Prize. This prize is given to the highest scoring candidate who is aged 30 or under, on the date of registration.
Sarah said of her time at BMC ‘The course was really good. I really enjoyed it. I chose to do it just to extend my own knowledge of gardening. The award was a complete surprise and I am absolutely delighted to receive it.’
Both students will receive their prizes at an awards ceremony next February. This will be held at the RHS headquarters at Vincent square in London.
