Farnborough College of Technology student recognised in Association of College’s Student of the Year Awards

Farnborough College of Technology student, Alanna Goddard, has been highly commended in 2017 Association of Colleges Student of the Year Awards.

Alanna is highly commended in the Young Student of the Year category of the national awards.

Alanna was nominated by Farnborough College of Technology Sport Science and Public Services Programme Manager, Mark Treagust. Of 115 students nominated, Alanna was one of only two students to be highly commended. She will receive a certificate from the Association of Colleges, and has been invited to a reception at the House of Commons.

Programme Manager, Mark Treagust, said: “When we were asked to nominate students for the Student of the Year awards, Alanna came to mind straight away.

“She’s a fantastic student who is incredibly motivated and driven, and has embraced every opportunity given to her – whether this was heading off to Edge Hill University for a week long placement, or representing the student body as a Student Governor.

“Alanna gained D*D*D* for her Sport Science BTEC with us, and is now heading to the University of Hertfordshire to study a degree in Sport. We wish her the best of luck!”

David Hughes, Chief Executive of the Association of Colleges, said: “The Student of the Year awards showcase the very best of college students across the country. They celebrate the achievements of the exceptional students who stand out from the crowd. It isn’t only about whether someone has achieved the top grades, but rather the inspirational nature of accomplishments.”

This year’s awards saw 115 nominations across the three categories. The judging panel, including representatives from the National Union of Students and Step up to Serve, were overwhelmed by the variety of applications and the extent of the success of the students.
