Miriam Nicola, progress and welfare adviser at Tameside College who nominated the three students, was pleased to see them recognised:

“All three are fantastic students with 100% attendance and punctuality. They always get involved with college activities, are never negative and put all their efforts into college life. They have overcome so many barriers to get to where they are today and I am extremely happy to see them rewarded for this.”
