Student needs help in trans-Atlantic study
Francesca Edwards

A TRANS-ATLANTIC student is appealing for readers help in a project to study how attitudes and values vary across the world.

Francesca Edwards, a former Wickersley Comprehensive pupil, is currently studying at Bennington College, Vermont, USA.

As part of her degree in international relations and security, she is working on a research paper to be presented to a conference in Edinburgh taking place in June.

It requires 150 people to complete an online about personal values.

Those taking part should have gone to school or college in Rotherham.

At the same time, Francesca is surveying people in Vermont to study whether values are different in the US state.
