SOME 47 high achieving UL business and management students have been honoured with outstanding scholar awards at the annual Kemmy Business School awards ceremony.

The ninth year the University of Limerick’s business school has held these awards, they recognise the most outstanding scholars in the school each year.

The students were presented their award certificates by Dr Philip O’Regan, Dean of the school and Clive Bellows, Northern Trust’s Irish managing director at a ceremony which took place in the KBS building.

The Dean of the Kemmy Business School, Dr Philip O’Regan said at the event ‘this awards ceremony recognises truly outstanding student achievements across the business school’s various programmes.

Mr Bellows said: “These outstanding students represent the business leaders of the future in Ireland. We want to recognise their hard work, foster their talent, and encourage them to achieve their potential.”

The Louise Newman Memorial Prize was also presented at the ceremony by Barry Sullivan, president of the Insurance Institute of Ireland.

This year’s recipient is Fiona Brosnan from Knocknagoshel, Co Kerry.

The accolade is given to the top University of Limerick insurance graduate each year.

It was established in 2002 to mark the untimely passing of an outstanding business academic, Louise Newman.

It reflects her previous active association with the Insurance Institute of Ireland, who generously sponsored this annual prize.

Ms Newman lectured in the Risk Management and Insurance discipline, for the Kemmy Business School, between the years of 1996 and 2001.
