NEF Directors Professor Sa’ad Medhat and Michelle Medhat and Trustee Dan Fox met several Officer Cadets at a Military Education Committee reception last night, at the University of London’s Senate House. The reception was held to mark the achievements of young people progressing through the University of London Royal Naval Unit, Officers’ Training Corps and London Air Squadron. HRH The Princess Royal, Chancellor of the University of London, Royal Honorary Colonel of the OTC and Royal Honorary Air Commodore of ULAS, spoke at the function and met with guests including the NEF representatives. She was impressed with NEF’s support for the organisation, a recognition of the importance of technology and engineering to the armed forces as a whole.
Michelle Medhat said:
“We strongly support the Cadetship schemes, which not only enhance the Cadet’s technical and problem-solving skills but also develop responsibility and leadership. These are extremely valuable traits in young people.”
