Dux Medal
Brora Heritage Centre

The Dux medal is an award given to the student with the highest academic achievement in the whole year. The word ‘dux’ is Latin for leader.

This medal was awarded to Catherine Ross on June 30, 1926, at a prize-giving ceremony to mark the end of the school year at Clyne Higher Grade School.

Seventeen-year-old Catherine attended Clyne Higher Grade School in Victoria Road. She was obviously a very studious and talented pupil, and went on to study at Edinburgh University where she gained a Master’s Degree.

She eventually married and moved to Kenya where she had four children.
