Staff, students and societies at Liverpool Hope University have been celebrated and praised at the annual Hope Star Excellence Awards 2022. 

The ceremony aims to highlight those who’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty to make Hope a better place. 

Organised by the Students’ Union, winners were nominated by the wider Hope student family. 

And a party at the Great Hall, Creative Campus, saw winners presented with prizes by the Students' Union President Clara Jayne Priestley and her team, while academics such as Dr Penny Haughan, Deputy Vice Chancellor and Provost, also enjoyed the occasion. 

Clara Jayne said: “From the entire Students’ Union team, we want to thank everyone for being part of our Hope Star Awards, and we congratulate all those who were either nominated or received a prize. 

“You should all be extremely proud of yourselves and we can’t wait to do it all again next year.”

Among the winners were Dr Patrice Haynes, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, who scooped the ‘Tutor of the Year’ gong, while Dave Sennett, Executive Project Manager, was named Support Staff member of the year. 

Rose Devereux, Skills for Care Coordinator, was named ‘Hope Star in the Community’ among staff.

Meanwhile determined Philosophy, Ethics, and Religion student Jack Evans was named ‘Hope Star in the Community’ among the student community for, among other things, his tireless advocating for the trans and non-binary community.
