A school chair of governors is set to stand down after more than a decade of service.
Heather Pitman, who has been chair of governors at Hollins Technology College in Accrington for 11 years and on the board for 13 years, will leave the role in September.
Sarah Ginn, school promotions officer, said: “Heather has been a valued member of the governing body working with three headteachers and appointing two of them.
“Along with the governing body, Heather has driven the Hollins forward considerably.
“Heather wanted to leave a legacy at The Hollins and decided to choose something extremely close to her heart.
“As a librarian, Heather knows how important reading is and decided the Heather Pitman Read to Succeed trophy would be an excellent way to recognise the achievements of pupils in reading and literacy.
“Isa Mohammed was the first proud recipient of the trophy.”
Isa, a Year 7 pupil, is also the first student from the college to become a ‘Word Millionaire’ under the Accelerated Reader programme which was introduced to the school last September.
