Glasgow Kelvin College celebrated its 2017/18 Class Prize and John Wheatley Award winners with a packed auditorium in Easterhouse recently in Platform at The Bridge.
Proud family, friends, employers and College staff cheered as around 120 students received recognition for their hard work and endeavour in non-advanced learning in the 2017/18 academic session.
Nominated by their tutors, these remarkable students were presented with awards by Mr. Irving Hodgson, outgoing Chair of the Board of Management. In addition to the Class Prizes, several trophies were sponsored by employers and trades bodies including;
- Pump Action Ltd
- Scottish Plant Operators Association (SPOA)
- BESA (Building Engineering Services Association)
- Contractors Mechanical Plant Engineers (CMPE)
These were awarded to students who had excelled in their vocational trade and employers were there to applaud their great achievement.
In addition, the John Wheatley Awards were presented by the Chair and by Dermot Lynch of The Wheatley Group who co-sponsor the awards with the Robert Bennie Trust.
This year, almost fifty nominations were submitted for the John Wheatley Award, which is presented to eight students who have worked to overcome challenges in their life and learning. Five of the award-winning students were delighted to come along and accept their awards: Mark Ravenscroft, Ashley Booth, Lesley Ann McColgan, Jordan Muir and Traci Lowden are pictured here with Dermot Lynch of The Wheatley Group and Donald Goldie of Robert Bennie Trust.
All the students involved have done amazingly well and the excellent staff who have been involved in their learning journey should be very proud.
Congratulations to them all.
