Honorary Lifetime Membership to Brighton Students' Union
Jenny worked for Brighton Students’ Union for 24 years from 1994 until 2020. Jenny has been the face of the Students’ Union at the Moulsecoomb campus supporting students and societies from her office in Cockcroft. She is remembered with great affection by all the past students, officers and staff that she worked with.
Di worked for Brighton Students’ Union for 45 years from 1975 until 2020. That is nearly half the entire time that BSU has existed. Di has supported thousands of Eastbourne students during their studies and is a revered figure on the campus. Di’s performances in Dance Rivals will go down in BSU folklore and her infectious smile and laugh will be remembered by all the students and staff that she met.
John Smith leaves the University this year after 6 years as the Head of the School of Education. During his time leading the school of education, the school won BSU’s School of the Year Award 2 years in a row which is no coincidence as he actively promoted the student voice in all aspects of the School. He advocated on behalf of students in his own school, and across the University recognising the importance of feedback at all levels.
Amanda Bright has been the Head of the School of Art for the last 5 years. During this time Amanda has worked closely with the Students’ Union to help improve the student's experience within the school and across the University. She has embedded the student voice in all decision making and has gone above and beyond during the past year to assist students.
Ramy has been the Vice President Education for the last two years. He has worked tirelessly to improve the student experience during his time in officer. He has developed excellent relationships across the university and student population and has been successful in campaigning for key changes such as lecture capture. Over the past year he has been at the forefront of the No Detriment and Safety net lobbying which has made a genuine difference to students throughout the University. In addition, he has spread the Brighton student voice on a national level through his membership on the Office for Students student panel and been invited to speak at numerous events.
