More than 100 students received certificates of congratulations supported by friends and family at the North East Scotland College Fraserburgh Graduation held at the Fraserburgh Campus on Saturday, September 30.
Vice-chair Doug Duthie, who welcomed the graduates, said: “Since its inception 23 years ago, the Fraserburgh ceremony has been a very important date in the college diary and will continue to be so.
“It’s a day which is primarily a celebration of endeavour, achievement and success, but it is also an opportunity to pay tribute to the many partners, families and friends who have supported our students throughout the duration of their studies.
“Over the years we have seen thousands of students collect their certificates of congratulations and the Board of Management is still as touched and honoured to be part of this day as it was at its inception.”
Liz McIntyre, principal and chief executive, North East Scotland College said: “Graduations are a celebration of achievement and mark the beginning of the next chapter.
“They are as important for families and friends as they are for the students and a proud day for staff at the college. I wish our Fraserburgh graduates all the very best for their future.”
This year the College Board of Management decided to introduce an annual award of Fellowship which was awarded Conrad Ritchie, managing director of Score (Europe) Limited.
Conrad is a former student who has excelled not only in his field of work but has made an outstanding contribution to education and training, mentoring hundreds of trainees over the years.
Individual presentations were also awarded to deserving students including prizes awarded by Score, which were presented by James Geddes, and the Rotary Club of Fraserburgh Endeavour Award which was presented by Bill Maitland, the club’s secretary.
