Congratulations from Tia Cannop, HISA Depute President, North Highland College UHI
"I am very grateful that the students of North Highland College UHI have once again given me the chance to be their representative as the Local Student Officer.
This has been another terrific year with many students engaging with HISA to improve the student experience, and I look forward to this continuing well into the future. While the coming year will doubtless present its own, unique challenges, I'm excited to find new ways to meet and engage with our students, and hear their thoughts on how to make this year an even better one.
I want to take this opportunity to join all of HISA and the university in congratulating everyone graduating. I'm proud of all of you, and although I'm sad that we cannot celebrate together in person this year, my thoughts are with you all."
