A tree has been planted at Richard Huish College to remember former teacher, Karen Revans who died of breast cancer last year.

Karen Revans worked at Huish from 1994-2013, when she took early retirement due to ill health and subsequently passed away in May 2017, aged 56.

Karen taught A Level Chemistry and Physics, ran the College Debating teams and co-ordinated entries to Oxford & Cambridge Universities and Medical and Veterinary courses.

Karen’s golden acer tree takes pride of place amid the new staff garden at Huish, where a local garden designer has worked with College staff to create an area for both work and relaxation. This comes as part of the College’s drive to add more greenery and ecology to its campus, working with students both to increase biodiversity and to pick-up litter and recycle on campus and around the area – all things which current staff think Karen would have approved.

Current staff, former colleagues, friends and family of Karen attended the tree planting ceremony to share their fond memories of Karen. She is greatly missed by all at Huish.
