Solicitor Emilda Morgans has been appointed as chair of academy council for the new Oasis Academy Don Valley in Sheffield.
Emilda, a partner at Wosskow Brown, was handed the position at a topping out ceremony to mark the completion of building for the school on the site of the former Don Valley Stadium in Attercliffe.
She said: “I could not be more surprised and delighted with this honour and am looking forward to working with Oasis to help raise the pupil’s aspirations, expectations and achievements in our local community.”
The £17m academy is the first building to be hosted on the newly coined ‘Olympic Legacy’ Park. It will open its doors in September 2015.
