THREE generations of one family have celebrated the same achievement after graduating from Edge Hill University.
Lauren Pendleton-Nash has followed in the footsteps of her mum, Caroline, and grandma, Margaret, in studying at the university – while her younger sister Charlotte will begin her studies at the Ormskirk university in September, continuing the family tradition.
Lauren, who studied BA (Hons) Sports Management and Coaching, said: “I grew up in Singapore so I was always abroad and I came back one Christmas before applying to university to have a look around the campus.
“It had changed so much from when my mum was here, and it was the campus that really pushed me to come to Edge Hill. My grandma and my mum have been such inspirations to me and it means a lot that we’ve all shared the experience of studying at the same university.”
After graduating, Lauren will be reuniting with her mum and moving to Dubai where she has got a job working as a football coach in schools.
Caroline graduated in 2005 after studying BA (Hons) Children’s Development and Learning with QTS and in 2017, completed her MA Education (Educational Leadership) degree, while Margaret studied History and Communications. Charlotte will be studying BA (Hons) Secondary English Education with QTS.
