Dr Jessica Gray, Class of 2012

Jess is a doctor in colorectal surgery in Huddersfield and was the recipient of the 2018 Young Alumni Award. Jess has graduated in Medicine from the University of Sheffield where she has also received a Distinction in a Masters of Research in Translational Oncology and presented her paper at a conference for the British Association of Endocrine and Thyroid Surgeons. In addition to thriving under the demands of a medical degree, she has shown real altruism and dedication when it comes to supporting a wide range of charitable causes. Whether training for a half marathon to raise money for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice during her final exams, or organising a talk by Professor Steve Peters, the author of the Chimp Paradox, in aid of MIND, she is focused on helping others. She has taught parents first aid as part of the initiative ‘How to save a baby’s life’ and founded the Charity Netball tournament for all abilities which is now held annually. She continues with the ethos of CHS and is an excellent example of an Old Waconian. ‘I feel hugely honoured to have been recognised by CHS for my academic efforts as well as my fundraising. It was both surprising and slightly amusing to be awarded for doing what I enjoy and my inability to sit still. My time at CHS gave me some of my fondest memories and I continue to call my fellow Waconians my best friends.’
