Gretta and Kenneth Pritchard, both from Dundee, graduated in Law in 1960 and 1954, respectively. Though they live in Edinburgh now, they’re still fond of their home city and were back in town for their granddaughter Zoe’s graduation in Medicine on Friday.¬†We met them to talk about how it feels to see their granddaughter follow in their footsteps by graduating from their alma mater.

“Kenneth and I were delighted when Zoe chose to study in our home city of Dundee.”

 

“My great grandmother used to live on the same street that I live on now, so this city really is a second home to me.”

– Zoe Pritchard, Medicine MBChB, Class of 2018

Zoe, who has been President of the Dundee University Medical Students (DUMS) association, told us how it feels to have lived and studied in Dundee.

“I have a really strong family connection to Dundee. Both my grandparents were raised and studied here, my dad was born here and lived here until he was 12, and my brother studied Law at Abertay University as well.

“My great grandmother used to live on the same street that I live on now, so this city really is a second home to me.

“I have such lovely memories of Dundee – both coming here as a child with my Grandma to see where she grew up, but also now of my own time here over the last five years.”
