THE VICE Chancellor and Chief Executive of the University of Worcester has been awarded a CBE for services to Education.
Prof David Green has led the university to a remarkable transformation since becoming head in 2003 and has become the only person to have received both the Pride of Worcestershire and Worcestershire Ambassador of the Year awards.
He said: “I am surprised, humbled and delighted to be awarded this national honour.
“In my view it is very much an award for the whole of the University of Worcester, whose staff, students, graduates and Governors do such wonderful work in the City, County and Country.
“It is a privilege and a joy to work with such talented and committed people at the University, and alongside so many friends and partners in education, health, business, public service, Church and community generally.”
He thanked his wife Cathy and his daughters Lauren and Alex, saying their support, inspiration
and love had been central to any and every contribution he had made over these 16 happy years at the University of Worcester.
