Harrogate College celebrated the success of our degree students with graduation on Friday 14th October 2016, at a new and beautiful venue, St Peter’s Church in Harrogate.
Graduates arrived promptly to don their caps and gowns and have many photos taken with friends, to be kept as lifelong memories of their fantastic achievements.
The ceremony was opened with a welcoming speech from the Groups Director of Higher Education, Alastair Thomson followed by the Key Note speaker of the evening, Simon Weaver, Manager of Harrogate Town Football Club.
Shortly after, a flurry of golden and blue sashed graduates crossed the stage, in front of family, friends, staff and distinguished guests, all celebrating and sharing in their success.
It was fabulous to see the range of courses undertaken by students over the past few years and also the success that they have already had, and will continue to have in their future careers.
Student Union lead Lee Pearson also gave an inspiring speech, congratulating the students on all their hard work over the years.
The ceremony was then closed by Chief Executive of the Hull College group, Gary Warke before graduates continued in their celebrations.
