Award success for Business student

The Kent Association for the Blind hosted their annual awards ceremony on 28 November at Bradbourne House to celebrate those young people who are visually impaired.

Level 2 in Business student Kristan Burrows from the College’s Medway Campus was nominated for, and won, the Young Person of the Year Award at the prestigious event! He was nominated for all of the achievements that he had accomplished in the last year at College. He worked hard to achieve a Level 1 in English and maths, as well as a Multi-Trades qualification, and is proud of what he has achieved. He has since continued his studies with the College on the Level 2 in Business programme.

He was joined at the ceremony by Clare McLeod, his specialist support worker at the College. She said “It was great to see Kristan's hard work from last year pay off. For Kristan to win Young Person of the Year Award, showed his perseverance and determination to pass his qualifications here at the College.

It was a great evening where visually impaired people celebrated their successes.”

The Kent Association for the Blind charity work with over 12,500 people across Kent to support those affected by sight loss, as well as raising awareness of eye health and preventable sight loss.

Congratulations to Kristan, and keep on working hard!
