Students of 2014 Awards


Annual Awards Group 2014web

On Thursday 11th December, Tresham held its annual awards ceremony where a total of 34 students who completed their course at the college this summer were awarded as Student of the Year for their area of study at a glittering ceremony held at the Best Western Hotel in Corby.

The ceremony included performances from HND Music students and speeches from the college’s alumni to great applause from the audience.
Winners of the awards are now celebrating as they have progressed into work or further study at college and universities across the country.

The award ceremony was hosted by Robert Emery together with Tresham’s Students’ Union Representatives; Emily Vitue and Geri Payne.

Stuart Wesselby, Principal at Tresham said:

“Our annual awards ceremony is a fantastic opportunity for tutors, families and guests of honour to join together and celebrate our students’ achievements from last year. This year I was very pleased to be able to hear from these student ambassadors with their own unique stories of how studying at the college has helped them in their journey to their chosen career.

All of the winners and their families should be very proud of what they have accomplished and I wish them, together with all of our current students, all the best for their careers or further study.”

Winners of the awards this year included students who have excelled against their own expectations due to a variety of reasons including giving birth to their first child whilst studying, overcoming language barriers and returning to education after a break of nearly 16 years to raise a family.

As the Motorsport Student of the Year award (sponsored by The Old Cytringanians) was not presented on the evening as winner, Simon Crain,  was in Spain with the Carlin Motorsport team we finally managed to catch up with him where Managing Director, Tim Carlin, presented his award. Simon is currently in the middle of a busy car building and test programme in preparation for the Formula 3 Euroseries where he is employed as a number 2 mechanic.
