A FORMER pupil at Heywood Community School certainly means business, after scooping a top third-level award.
Raymond Dalton was honoured at a ceremony in Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT), having achieved first-class honours during the 2018-19 academic year to reach the top 5% of his class.
A past-pupil of the secondary school in Ballinakill, Raymond is studying the bachelor of business degree programme. He was among those presented with certificates at the WIT School of Business annual ‘recognition of awards’ ceremony last semester.
The dean’s list comprises only about the top 5% highest performers in the school of business, each achieving first-class honours in their continuing studies. The ceremony recognises continuing students with outstanding academic achievement in their previous year.
The awards were called by the course leaders and presented by the head of school (dean) of business Dr Thomas O’Toole.
In his address to students, Dr O’Toole said: “The students on the dean’s list are among the highest achievers nationally and internationally. Their quest for academic excellence is underpinned by their commitment and enthusiasm for their programme of study and bodes well for their future careers.”
