A CUMBERNAULD woman has received a top award for outstanding financial services graduates in Glasgow.

Alexis Grieve from Kildrum achieved a grade A in her Bachelor in Accountancy at the University of the West of Scotland – and her tutors nominated her as their top student.

The former Greenfaulds High School pupil received £500 and a certificate from Glasgow’s International Financial Services District which seeks to recognise the talents of newcomers to the profession and to support the institutions that teach them.

Alexis is seen above receiving her award from Jill Farrell, who is the director of financial services at Scottish Enterprise.
