Darren Cunningham from Phillips 66 presenting the Industry Partnership Special Award to student Rhys McNulty.
Humber UTC students, parents, staff and industry partners gathered at Forest Pines Hotel in Brigg to celebrate a successful year at the college.
A packed room heard Marc Doyle, Principal of the college, reflect on a year of academic achievement as students collected awards for a range of subjects with special acknowledgement for Outstanding Students in Years 10, 11, 12 and 13; the student contributing most to the college and the most improved student. The big award of the night was the Phillips 66 Industry Partnership Special Award which went to Year 10 student, Rhys McNulty, who was recongised as an excellent ambassador for the UTC in everything he does.
Representatives from a range of the University Technical College’s industry partners, including CATCH, Phillips 66, Triton Knoll, Jacobs, Cristal, the Royal Air Force and British Steel, attended to present the students with their awards.
Gavin Jones from Cristal said: “We are extremely proud to be associated with Humber UTC. The college is hugely important to us, providing us with our new employees of the future. We help to shape the curriculum to ensure students will graduate with skills that are relevant not only to us, but other local employers in the renewables and engineering sectors here in the Humber region. It’s been a great evening for everyone here and all the students deserve recognition for what they’ve achieved.”
Marc Doyle, Principal, commented: “All the students have worked hard this year so it’s only fitting that we should all celebrate together. I’m proud of them all and I’m excited about the future as we look forward to next year. I’m passionate about ensuring Humber UTC not only provides a great education but also a very strong pathway to a fantastic career. Seeing so many of our industry partners here tonight is a demonstration of how valuable the UTC is to local employers. It’s been great to be able to thank everyone for their continued support.”
Keynote speaker at the event was acclaimed local writer, speaker and broadcaster, Richard Askam, who shared his story about his successful career working with global brands.
