Dr David Roberts, University Registrar at Bangor added: "This University has a strong tradition of recognising the achievements of various men and women from different walks of life. This year is no exception, and we look forward to awarding Honorary Fellowships. Our Fellows will add great distinction to the ceremonies at which we also recognise the achievements of our students.”
