Youngsters take on pollution

Have your say

University of Portsmouth hospitality staff and students have been celebrating a double success.

Final year BA (Hons) Hospitality Management with Tourism student Jasmine (Jazz) Jenkins scooped the prestigious Tourism Student of the Year Award 2016, given by the Bella Rangal Callen Institute of Travel.

Her tourism lecturer, Liz Sharples, received this year’s University of Portsmouth Business School’s Inspiring Teacher Award.

The Bella Rangal Callen Institute of Travel and Tourism prize is a coveted industry honour celebrating high calibre students.

Mrs Sharples said: ‘I am so proud of Jazz. She is such a hard-working and dedicated student and deserves this recognition.’

Jazz, 22, said: ‘I am delighted to have won Student of the Year and am very much looking forward to visiting the Houses of Parliament to collect the award.’

Jazz will be presented with her award at the Institute of Travel and Tourism’s summer party in July.
