Beth Mead’s former university have unveiled a plaque in honour of the Arsenal forward after her Golden Boot performance that helped England win the Euros this summer.
Earlier this year, Beth Mead launched a scholarship at Teesside University, where she studied before graduating in 2016.
Now, the same institution has unveiled a plaque honouring their former student.
In a statement on their website, Will Jones, head of sport at Teesside University, said: “We are incredibly proud of Beth and everything that she has achieved.
“She is a fantastic ambassador for our University and for the region as a whole.
“What the Lionesses achieved this summer was incredible and it will have a transformational impact on the women’s game in this country.
“Beth is a role model for so many young people and we are delighted to have a permanent reminder of her success here at Teesside University which I hope will help to inspire our current and future students.”
The plaque is in the reception are of the Olympia Building.
Mead joined Arsenal the year after she finished her degree in Sports Development and has gone on to become one of the best players in the world. She recently came runner-up in UEFA’s Player of the Year.
Mead’s profile is certainly taking off. She recently partnered with ‘Arsenal-obsessed’ Camden Brewery, who even launched a beer in her honour.
Mead is also an Ambassador for Whitby Town.
The 27-year-old found the back of the net again this weekend, opening the scoring in Arsenal’s 4-0 demolition of north London rivals, Tottenham, in front of a record-breaking crowd.
