Seaton secretary’s Open University success
Lyme carnival committee chairman puts the past behind her to gain history degree
A SEATON secretary who failed her GCSE history examination has just achieved a great ambition in winning a degree from the Open University.
Teresa Evemy slotted study periods into her extremely busy lifestyle for eight years before hearing this week that her efforts merited a 2-2 honours degree in classical history.
“It is a great feeling,” she said. “I have been interested in history, especially Greek and Roman, from primary school, and now I am considering going on to take a Master’s degree.
“The Open University is marvellous because it enables people to study their chosen subjects at any time in life and at their own pace.”
