A student is celebrating after being recognised for his academic achievements.

Ryan Thomson, 25, has been awarded the Honorary Award for the Highest Academic Performance on the Brand Leadership masters’ degree at the University of East Anglia (UEA).

Mr Thomson, a former Cliff Park pupil who grew up in Lister Close, Gorleston, received a high distinction in all of his modules and dissertation, which focussed on how brands should create, implement and measure social movements.

He received a cash prize of £1,000 alongside his accolade.

Director of brand leadership at the UEA Peter Schmidt-Hansen said Ryan was a brilliant student who took his studies seriously, always with a smile.

He added: “With boundless energy he threw himself into all aspects of his course whether class discussions, project work with companies or assignments. He’ll go on to great things and is bound to make a difference.”
