King’s has announced that this year, three alumni have been selected to receive the highly coveted Alumni Leading Light Award. The award recognises those whose accomplishments represent extraordinary achievement and who have also continued to contribute to the school in some way.
The Winners are:
Matt Hancock (OKS 1996)
For: Carving out an incredibly successful career in politics – his recent promotion to Secretary of State for Health and Social Care is a testament to his talent and hard work. As one of King’s highest profile political success stories he is a great inspiration to current pupils.
Martin Lewis (OKS 1990)
For: Demonstrating that a desire to innovate and have real passion for your chosen field can lead to success. His selfless dedication to help people who, through no fault of their own, have been caught out by modern personal finance doublespeak should be applauded.
Ravi Jayaram (OKS 1985)
For: His tireless work to enhance children’s health and understanding of key health issues as a senior paediatric consultant in Chester and through national broadcasting activities.
A panel consisting of the Headmaster, former staff, current Heads of School and the Director of External Affairs formed the selection panel and were delighted to announce the winners.
Each winner will be presented with their award personally, before the end of the year.
Thank you to all who posted nominations this year – nominations for 2019 Awards open in April!
