Ruther­glen stu­dent Kat Wil­son was on hand to mark a sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone in the con­struc­tion of a new Glas­gow land­mark.

Kat Wil­son (18) was one of a hand­ful of stu­dents at the City of Glas­gow Col­lege who was in­vited to at­tend a “top­ping out” cer­e­mony mark­ing con­struc­tion work on the col­lege’s new City Cam­pus reach­ing its high­est point.

Eigh­teen- year- old Kat com­bines study to­wards her HND Tele­vi­sion Pro­duc­tion de­gree with free­lance work for Glas­gow City Coun­cil and the or­gan­is­ers of the Royal Tele­vi­sion So­ci­ety Awards.

The former Calder­wood Pri­mary and Stonelaw High School pupil said: “It’s a very ex­cit­ing time for the stu­dents and ev­ery­one else at City of Glas­gow Col­lege.

“I would like to go on to work as a cam­era op­er­a­tor, ide­ally in doc­u­men­tary pro­duc­tion, and City of Glas­gow Col­lege of­fers a great en­vi­ron­ment to learn my trade.

“The tech­nol­ogy avail­able at the col­lege is al­ready amaz­ing, but to have brand new equip­ment on a brand new cam­pus will be great for all the stu­dents here.”

The City Cam­pus will be based on Cathe­dral Street in Glas­gow, with the £176m struc­ture set to stand at 52 me­tres high and be vis­i­ble from Ge­orge Square.
