Camp­bel­town woman is top stu­dent

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

A CAMP­BEL­TOWN woman study­ing ad­min­is­tra­tion had a red let­ter day when she was named fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion stu­dent of the year.

Re­becca Al­lan was re­cently awarded the Ar­gyll Col­lege UHI ti­tle in front of more than 80 stu­dents at the col­lege’s grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony in Oban.

The grad­u­at­ing stu­dents were ad­dressed by Gary McLean of Masterchef The Pro­fes­sion­als fame.

In a speech, the 45-year-old award win­ning chef en­cour­aged the stu­dents to work hard to achieve their dreams.

Re­becca com­pleted a na­tional cer­tifi- cate in ad­min­is­tra­tion this year, hav­ing pro­gressed from a na­tional pro­gres­sion award in con­struc­tion.

Dur­ing her time at col­lege, Re­becca was unan­i­mously elected class rep­re­sen­ta­tive by her peers.

This role saw Re­becca rep­re­sent the col­lege at the High­lands and Is­lands Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion (HISA) an­nual meet­ing in In­ver­ness. Re­becca was also part of a small group of stu­dents in­vited to the Scot­tish par­lia­ment to give feed­back on stu­dent life.

Re­becca’s tu­tor from the col­lege de­scribed her as: ‘An ex­cel­lent stu­dent and am­bas­sador for the col­lege.’

Dur­ing the cer­e­mony, Re­becca gave an ac­count of her time with Ar­gyll Col­lege and although she finds pub­lic speak­ing nerve-wrack­ing, she ad­mit­ted the speech wasn’t as daunt­ing as speak­ing in the Scot­tish par­lia­ment.

Re­becca has pro­gressed onto an HNC in­ter­ac­tive me­dia and web de­sign at the col­lege’s Hazel­burn cam­pus.

Re­becca Al­lan is pre­sented with her cer­tifi­cate and tro­phy.
