In­spi­ra­tional stu­dent Han­nah com­mended

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

DE­TER­MI­NA­TION was the key to a col­lege learner’s suc­cess.

Han­nah Cooper was highy com­mended in the Amer­sham and Wy­combe Col­lege stu­dent of the year awards.

The an­nual awards cel­e­brates the achieve­ments of col­lege stu­dents, re­gard­less of their age, course or level of study.

In to­tal, 82 nom­i­na­tions were re­ceived and the judges were im­pressed to read about Han­nah’s de­ter­mi­na­tion and suc­cess as the man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of a col­lege-run busi­ness and felt this needed to be recog­nised.

Pres­i­dent of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Col­leges, John Wid­dow­son, who led the judg­ing panel, said: “As a col­lege prin­ci­pal, I know that stu­dents across the coun­try are com­mit­ted to work­ing hard to achieve suc­cess. Han­nah has shown the pos­i­tive im­pact fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion can have and is a true in­spi­ra­tion.”

Gill Brownell, course tu­tor, said: “Han­nah is on the autis­tic spec­trum dis­or­der and has spe­cific learn­ing dif­fi­cul­ties, but work­ing with her now it’s very hard to be­lieve she is the same young girl who joined us in Septem­ber 2014.

“At the Young En­ter­prise Chiltern Ar­eas Board Com­pany Fi­nals, Han­nah led the team to a very suc­cess­ful out­come and gave a pre­sen­ta­tion with oth­ers about their com­pany to 70 peo­ple.”
