Remembering Clare

The family and friends of Clare Pettit (née Martin) (2000, Physics and Philosophy) would like to invite Exonians and Friends of the College to support a bursary for an Exeter student in memory of Clare, who died on 6 April 2011, aged 30.

Clare came to Exeter College in October 2000 to study physics and philosophy. In her time there she was heavily involved in all aspects of College life, from rowing in a novice VIII to being elected as Women’s Officer – her enthusiasm always shone through. Clare met her future husband, Richard Pettit (2000, Jurisprudence) at Exeter and they were married in the College Chapel on 25 July 2009. After graduating Clare won a place on TeachFirst and taught maths in Merton. Having completed TeachFirst, and attaining Ambassador Status with a distinction, Clare went on to work at an investment bank in the City.

Open-hearted and generous, Clare lived life to the full but always found time and energy to help and motivate her numerous mentees. She is greatly missed and touched the lives of many in Exeter and beyond.
