Our 2023 Alumni of the Year Award winners!

Chloe Steele and Graham Hannaford, 2023 alumni award winners

Chloe Steele

Born and raised in South Uist, Chloe was the first person from the Outer Hebrides to graduate with the full honours degree in applied music, studying from home. A Gaelic singer and piper, she is dedicated to her community and she is a fantastic example of the reach, value, and impact that studying with UHI can offer. She also recently completed UHI’s PGDE in primary education (Gaelic). 

Dr Graham Hannaford

Graham was one of the first students on the MLitt History of the Highlands and Islands when it was launched in 2011. Then in his mid-60s, he studied entirely online from his home in Australia, and went on to complete the degree in 2015. Since then, Graham has been a champion of the Centre for History and has assisted UHI with connections into Scottish diasporic community life in Australia.
