SEAN Pow­erTar­batt, a Tame­side Col­lege stu­dent and Syliva Knowles, an em­ployee of Tame­side Col­lege have both been given awards by the High Sher­iff of Greater Manch­ester for their ‘ser­vices and con­tri­bu­tions to the com­mu­nity’. Sean, a hos­pi­tal­ity and cater­ing stu­dent, was awarded for his pro­gres­sion dur­ing his course and attitude to work. Sylvia, a learn­ing sup­port of­fi­cer at the col­lege, was also given an award for go­ing above and be­yond in sup­port­ing stu­dents through­out their time at the col­lege.

Gerry Ye­ung, the cur­rent High Sher­iff, saw first-hand the work Sean and Sylvia had been in­volved in and chose to re­ward their suc­cesses af­ter a visit to Tame­side Col­lege last year.

The cer­e­mony which takes place an­nu­ally, was held at the Yang Sing restau­rant in the Traf­ford Cen­tre on Mon­day, April 9. Each year the out­go­ing High Sher­iff hon­ours those he has met through­out his time in of­fice, with a range of peo­ple, or­gan­i­sa­tions and char­i­ties be­ing recog­nised.

Sean said: “I am hon­oured and amazed to have to have won this award, I couldn’t be­lieve that the High Sher­iff picked me. Sylvia, who has sup­ported me through­out my time at Tame­side Col­lege, is fan­tas­tic and I don’t think I could have done so well with­out her.” Jackie Moores, prin­ci­pal of Tame­side Col­lege, said: “I am ex­tremely proud of Sean and Sylvia, and all that they have achieved. The awards they re­ceived were very well de­served and they are a credit to the col­lege. Thank you to Gerry Ye­ung the High Sher­iff for in­clud­ing the col­lege in his awards.”
