A fourth Laois student has received a UCD Entrance Scholar Award earlier for academic excellence.
Sarah Graham sat her Leaving Cert in St Leo’s College in Carlow last summer.
The Crettyard native excelled in these and has been recognised with this award.
She is now studying Radiography in the Dublin college and also representing their athletics team.
Entrance Scholars are first year students recognised for their academic achievement in achieving 560 points or more in their Leaving Certificate examinations.
Recipients are presented with a recognition certificate and their achievements are recorded on their final academic transcript.
Sarah joins three fellow Laois people who were also honoured at a recent ceremony.
Durrow’s Darragh Conroy, James Dunne from Portarlington and Fionn McWey of Ballyroan also received scholarships.
Darragh is studying Science, James is studying Agricultural Science and Fionn is studying Physiotherapy.
They are all past pupils of Cistercian College Roscrea where they sat their Leaving Cert last June.
