Evesham Editorial 8th Jan, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016   0

AN EVESHAM-based college principal was among a host of people from across the UK being honoured in the New Year Honours list.

Mardy Smith, principal of New College for the blind in Worcester, has been honoured for her services to education with an OBE.

Among her many successes, Mrs Smith was at the helm in 2007 when the college became independent after more than 70 years being run by the Royal National Institute for the Blind.

New College is a national residential school and college for young people aged 11 to 19 who are blind or partially sighted.

“I am delighted to have been awarded an OBE.” she said.

“As well as being very pleased personally, this award reflects the many achievements and successes of the remarkable students and staff of New College Worcester.”
