Wallace Watson Award Lecture

Wallace Watson Award Lecture

Thu, 10/03/2016 - 18:00

The Wallace Watson Award is awarded to an undergraduate or graduate member of the College to undertake an expedition or travel of a challenging nature in a mountainous or remote area anywhere in the world. Wallace Watson (2000 Chemistry) was an undergraduate at St Catz, who achieved much in his short life, through combining determination with consideration for others, and success with modesty and humour. The Wallace Watson Award was set up in 2001 to give St Catz students the opportunities that Wallace grasped with both hands and foster an inner strength of character, an appreciation of other cultures and a broadening of the mind.

The 2017 winner will be announced at the Wallace Watson Award Lecture on 9th March, where last year's winners will speak about their experiences. Angus Young (2013, Chemistry) will share his stories of cycling across Asia, and William Hartz (2013, Chemistry) will recount his experiences of trekking across the Arctic.
