Aberdeen academic named Coronation Champion

Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Biological Sciences Dr Jenna Ross has been named as one of 500 outstanding volunteers to be chosen as the nation's Coronation Champions.

With the support of Her Majesty The Queen Consort, a passionate advocate of volunteering and President of Royal Voluntary Service, the Coronation Champions Awards were launched to recognise exceptional volunteers from across the country at this momentous point in history. Across the UK, 500 Champions dazzled the judging panel with the impact of their work, their inspirational stories and unwavering commitment to volunteering.

Dr Ross said: “It is an absolute honour to be named as a Coronation Champion.

“Volunteering is a huge part of my life, and it feels very special to be recognised for my efforts as part of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla’s Coronation celebrations.

“Promoting opportunities within agriculture and science is at the core of all my voluntary activities and I am proud to work with and support each and every organisation I’m affiliated with. I hope this award helps shine a light on the fantastic career and development opportunities both within science and the wider agricultural industry.”

All Coronation Champions have been invited to attend one of the official Coronation celebrations, such as the Windsor Castle Coronation Concert or a Coronation Garden Party. They will also receive a specially designed, official Coronation Champions pin and a certificate signed by Their Majesties.
