A FIRST class mother from Harpenden has graduated with a literature prize from the University of Hertfordshire.
Sue Crook, aged 33, of Hollybush Lane graduated with a first class BA honours degree in English Literature and was also awarded the Humanities Literature Prize at a St Albans Abbey ceremony last week.
Sue, who gave birth to her third child during her final year, had difficulties finding time for her studies and said that she often had to complete her work whilst her children were asleep, usually into the early hours of the morning.
She added: "My lecturer would often visit me at home to help with my studies and monitor my progress. The university's facilities also enabled me to access all the resources I needed and I could even take my children with me."
