Weaving our Carnegie heritage into our future

The Carnegie School of Sport is pleased to announce the formation of a new Carnegie Sport and Physical Education Alumni Steering Group. The group will be co-chaired by Dr Bob Price OBE (BEd (Hons) Physical Education, 1970) and Mike Gray (BEd (Hons) in Physical Education, 1983).

What is the steering group?

The group aims to improve the alumni engagement activities of the Carnegie School of Sport and Leeds Beckett University, by building relationships with our alumni, advising on our current activities, supporting current students and promoting the University’s reputation amongst their own network of friends, colleagues and business associates.

Co-chair Dr Bob Price OBE

Dr Bob Price OBE studied Physical Education at Carnegie College of Physical Education. Since then he has reached extraordinary levels of success as an international pioneer for the progression of disabled athletes. In 2017 he was awarded an honorary doctorate by Leeds Beckett University in recognition of his achievements. Dr Bob says "Carnegie provided me with skills, values and a behavioural frame of reference which have served me well throughout a long and varied career.  It is an honour and a privilege to be able to ‘give something back’ and I encourage all other Carnegie alumni to join me in supporting this new and exciting development."
