End of an era at college

Mrs Jean Hardy receives a bouquet from principal Dame Asha Khemka.

Long-standing chairman of governors Jean Hardy MBE stepped down after more than 20 years’ service at West Notts College.
Mrs Hardy (60), who received the MBE for her services to education in 2011, joined the board of governors in 1992 and became chairman four years later — the youngest in the country at the time, and one of only two women to hold the role within a college
She has been succeeded by vice-chairman Mr Nevil Croston, a partner at Bryan & Armstrong Solicitors.
Fellow governor Coun Kate Allsop, portfolio holder for economic regeneration at Mansfield District Council, has become vice-chairman.
College principal and chief executive, Dame Asha Khemka OBE, DBE, said: “Jean has served the college and the local community with distinction.”
