The exceptional achievements of students at Exeter College have been celebrated at a glittering awards ceremony.
A total of 27 winners were named from across Devon and beyond, highlighting the wider geographical reach of the college, at the Exeter College Annual Student Awards. The winners were joined by friends and family, together with sponsors, community and business leaders.
The award categories covered the college’s broad offer of programmes, from a range of full time and part time programmes to apprenticeships, and many, many more. The college was also delighted to welcome professional yachtsman Conrad Humphreys, who is an Exeter College alumnus, as the guest speaker at the gala dinner.
The inspiring event, which was supported by a range of sponsors, took place at Exeter’s Mercure Rougemont Hotel on Thursday, 4th January 2018.
John Laramy, Principal and Chief Executive of Exeter College, said: “As a college we attract and work with great students and the class of 2017 have yet again raised the bar, with record breaking academic results and by raising the highest ever total for the chosen college charity.
“This year’s award winners demonstrate exceptional achievements spanning each facet of the college’s operation and I would like to congratulate our great students, exemplified by the award winners.
“I would like to thank our excellent staff for going the extra mile and I would also like to thank everyone connected to and with the college – your support is the key thing that makes our vision of becoming an ‘exceptional college’ a reality.”
