Students honoured at Sports, Public Service and Criminology Awards

Sports, Public Services and Criminology learners were recognised for their hard work, growth, and achievements at our third annual awards.

The Manchester College recently held its third annual Sports, Public Services and Criminology Awards, honouring learners' dedication, excellence, and achievements.

As part of the event students and staff heard heartfelt speeches and stories from presenters and winners while also enjoying musical entertainment, including a saxophone solo from Omogbolahan Solarin, who was also awarded Male Student Athlete of the Year.

Discussing what the awards mean to colleagues and learners Course Leader in Sport and Public Service Justine Stevenson said: "It was wonderful to share so many heartfelt moments at our Sports, Public Service and Criminology Awards, acknowledge our students' hard work and recognise how they have grown academically and personally over the course of the academic year. 

“We’re so proud of our learners and their achievements”.

The Manchester College’s Basketball, Netball and Football Academies and Association of College Ambassadors were also honoured for their respective contributions and achievements during the season, including The Manchester College’s men’s football team winning the Association of Colleges North West Men’s Regional League 1.

Assistant Principal Julian Smith, Sports Public Services Care Professions and Science, commented: “During the year our students show a huge amount of dedication and commitment to ensuring that they achieve their full potential.
