Ralph Hayward's Story

"I have had an extremely challenging year with many ups and downs. I have had mental health difficulties, been bullied and felt completely alone. Until Ralph helped me, he has been the kindest and most reliable person I have ever met. He deserves to be celebrated because he is a truly wonderful gentleman. He helped me understand university procedures and guided me through all the processes, eloquently and with true compassion. Without a doubt an invaluable staff member! "
