2012 Queen’s Birthday Honours

June 17, 2012

In keeping with what I can now call tradition, I am happy to share with you the women of Birmingham who have been honoured by HM in this her Jubilee year.

Dame Professor Julia King CBE

Vice-Chancellor, Aston University. For services to Higher Education and Technology.

Mrs Gillian Ball OBE

Finance Director, University of Birmingham. For services to Higher Education.

Dr Lorna Cork MBE

Creator and Leader, Yes We Will Leadership and Achievement Programme, Birmingham. For services to Education.

Ms Ulite Malcolm MBE

Chaplaincy Volunteer, HM Prison Birmingham. For services to Prisoners and their Families.

This is the year Cameron has re-introduced the British Empire Medal (BEM) awarded locally by the odd County Lord Lieutenant, to recognise volunteering.  Well, not one for a Birmingham woman.  I’ve trawled through all 121 pages of honours and this is all I can spot – 4 women. awarded.

      Congratulations indeed, you must be very proud Debbie. I struggled to find a link to a good website with a bit more information about her, do you know of one? I’d love to update the post. Jaki

    I forgot to add the link to the actual list: http://www.direct.gov.uk/prod_consum_dg/groups/dg_digitalassets/@dg/@en/documents/digitalasset/dg_202133.pdf

    For regular readers – yes, it is still an annoying pdf. I thought I’d seen an old one as an open data source, but not front he government it seems…
