Tresham College celebrated 42 students and the success they have achieved at its annual awards ceremony.
Awards were presented for all of the different full-time courses and apprenticeships offered at the college.
Students from the music performance course opened the ceremony with acoustic performances before the guest speaker, gold medallist at the Rio Paralympics 2016 David Smith, spoke of his experience and sheer determination to achieve gold in the boccia competitions.
Winners of the awards were selected for their achievements over and above their peers with some now studying at universities including Cambridge, and others moving straight into employment within their chosen career.
Guests to the evening were able to hear the moving stories of how studying at college had changed lives and some students’ outlook on life, providing the self-confidence they needed to progress with their ambition and career goals.
Vice-principal at Tresham and host for the evening Corrie Harris said: “Our annual awards ceremony is the highlight of the year at Tresham.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to join winners’ families and friends to celebrate the amazing achievements of all of our students.
“Our 2016 winners are just a small number of the hundreds of the success stories we see each year and as always I was proud to hear how studying in further education has enhanced so many lives.
“All of the winners and their families should be very proud of what they have accomplished and I wish them, together with all of the students at Tresham, all the best for the future.”
