Congratulations from Ciaran Gibson, HISA Depute West Highland College UHI
Alexandra was chosen for this award because of her determination to always go the extra mile in both her studies and her support of her fellow students, despite having to overcome her own challenges. Her lecturer, Andy Gibb commended her saying “Alexandra is a very determined individual who fought through issues with anxiety and confidence to achieve to a very high standard.”
Further Education Student of the Year
Edward Mowles (NQ Maritime and Aquaculture Skills)
Eddie had been unemployed for 16 years and had applied to several local fish farms unsuccessfully before this course and was feeling he was going no-where. He could not see a way forward and - in his own words – “had nothing to get up for each day”. At his final review he only had one thing to say “I came here a rogue and I am leaving a gentleman. Eddie not only successfully achieved his course, a successful work placement and continued onto further study, he also acted as a role model for his peers and found that he thrived in helping younger students with their studies.”
