Kat is just the tops
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.
City of Glasgow College’s new £ 228million twin- site supercampus will be completed in summer 2017.
The Riverside Campus, officially opened earlier this month, while construction of City Campus is scheduled for completion in the summer of 2016.
The new supercampus is expected to serve up to 40,000 students a year and six million students in its lifetime.
