College celebrates student success

On Thursday 16 June, MidKent College held its Student Awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of its Maidstone and Medway campus students after 3 years of being on hold due to COVID-19.

Students were nominated by their tutors and staff members that know them best, for one of our fiercely contested award categories, including Student of the Year, Outstanding Contribution to Society, and The Green Award.

Finalists and their guests were treated to a three-course dinner at The Corn Exchange in Rochester, as well as entertainment from the College's Performing Arts and Music students. Our charity partner Spadework joined us and delivered an inspiring speech.

Gill Speed, Head of Training and Care at Spadework said “Congratulations to everyone who had been nominated and won an award. This is just an end to a chapter in your life. Take the opportunities to write new chapters and accept the challenges you will face, and grow in confidence to live a fulfilled, happy, healthy life.”

Principal and Chief Executive of the College, Simon Cook said, "After three years of not being able to hold our annual student awards ceremony it was amazing to celebrate our students in person this year.

The drive and passion our students have put into their work over the past couple of years, even when faced with the challenging situation of COVID-19, it is inspiring to see how committed our students were to continue with their studies. I wish all the finalists the best of luck in their future endeavors.”

We would like to extend our congratulations to our winners and finalists and thank those who attended to support them.
