GKC Civil Engineering student Leanne Lindsay was one of the proud recipients of the 'Keenan Award for Endeavour' last week at the Scottish Parliament.
Leanne was one of a number of GKC students who took part in Constructionarium Scotland last term, and the award was to recognise her efforts during the event.
Constructionarium Scotland is now being re-branded as ConStructEd and GKC will continue our involvement, which stretches back 13 years.
From the ConStructEd facebook page:
"What a great night to celebrate what was achieved by our students during 2019 with our inaugural 'Keenan Awards for Endeavour' along with our collaborative universities, industry partners and friends. Many thanks to to Fiona Hislop MSP who sponsored our reception within the Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Edinburgh and everyone that has supported us over the years.
As with our industry, we continue to adapt and evolve. The opportunity that we have taken to rebrand our experiential learning proposition as ConStructEd Scotland will see us creating new projects including a mobile project to reach out to more rural colleges and schools."
The award was named for Brian Keenan, recently retired Director of Constructionarium Scotland, and former Business Development Manager at Stow College.
