STUDENTS at the College of West Anglia have been recognised for going the extra mile in their contribution to the life of the College.
Isle Campus held its annual Awards Ceremony where the success of students and their commitment and dedication was celebrated.
Nominations came from lecturers across all college faculties and winners were presented with a trophy by Principal David Pomfret to mark their achievements.
Thirty nine hard-working students were honoured at the ceremony.
“We believe it is vital to celebrate the achievements of students who have shown wholehearted commitment to their studies, not simply through academic achievement, but through their special efforts and in some cases by overcoming considerable obstacles to achieve success”, said Mr Pomfret.
