Students at one of the biggest colleges in Northamptonshire have been recognised for their hard work and success at a special ceremony.
Tresham College, which has more than 10,000 pupils studying at its campuses in Corby, Kettering and Wellingborough, held its annual awards do last week.
A total of 34 award recipients were recognised for being the Student of the Year in their field of study at the ceremony, held at the Best Western Hotel in Corby last Thursday.
College staff have congratulated all award winners, including one who gave birth to her first child while studying, another who overcame language barriers and a third who returned to education following a break of nearly 16 years to raise a family.
One winner, Remi Stowesand, who won Learner Representative of the Year for his work as Students’ Union President, secured a place at Newcastle University reading Law.
Remi, who studied the BTEC National Diploma in Computing, was acknowledged as one of the best student governors Tresham had ever had on its board, and the college said it was very rare for a top university to offer a place to a BTEC student from an unconnected subject area.
Tresham College’s principal Stuart Wesselby paid tribute to all students recognised, saying: “Our annual awards ceremony is a fantastic opportunity for tutors, families and guests of honour to join together and celebrate our students’ achievements from last year.
“This year I was very pleased to be able to hear from these student ambassadors with their own unique stories of how studying at the college has helped them in their journey to their chosen career.
“All of the winners and their families should be very proud of what they have accomplished.
“I wish them, together with all of our current students, all the best for their careers or further study.”
The awards were sponsored by a number of county companies, charities and local authorities.
