Lorna Browne who studied the HND in Health and Social Care spoke on behalf of the “Class of 2015”.  Lorna commented “I also would like to thank my lecturers. To have a team with your combined knowledge, experiences and unlimited patience, has been immeasurable. To have someone you respect not only as a teacher, but also as a person, display a belief in your capabilities and support you when things are getting so tough it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel, is everything. When I graduate from Queens with my degree in Social Work, I will be thinking of you all…how you inspired and supported me and how  you believed in me…for all of this, I thank you.”
