08 January 2018 | Childcare, Health & Social Care
Emily Powell, 18, from Eggbuckland was recognised at the recent Student of the Term awards, which celebrates the exceptional achievements City College students.
Emily was recognised for her compassionate nature and work with the community with the Care Student of the Term award.
City College’s Director of Business, Hospitality, Care and Lifestyle, Teresa Gardner, said: “Emily’s fantastic attitude towards her learning really sets her apart from the crowd and makes her a very worthy winner of a Student of the Term award. Hardworking, enthusiastic and never without a smile on her face, Emily is a real joy to have at the College.”
Emily spent the summer volunteering at her work placement and completed an impressive 850 work hours. She has recently returned from a trip to Mexico where she helped to build homes for the less fortunate.
Emily said: “I love helping people and to be recognised for pursing what I’m passionate about is a real honour. I had a lovely evening and I am so proud to have been given a Student of the Term award.”
The Student of the Term awards recognise students who are making a positive contribution to their course, the College or the local community – over and above what is expected.
Held in the College’s PL1 Restaurant, the food was prepared and served by current hospitality and catering students. The awards evening was attended by each of the 16 Student of the Term winners and their families, their nominating lecturers, College staff and Governors.
The awards honoured students across the full range of courses that the College offers. Those interested in finding out more can do so at City College’s Open Day on Saturday 3 February, 10.00am to 1.00pm at Kings Road. Visit www.cityplym.ac.uk/events or call 01752 305300 for more information.
