Hundreds of Ayrshire College students were selected by their lecturers to receive special recognition for their hard work and commitment over the last year.

Three Excellence Award ceremonies celebrated the achievements of one student per class with celebrations beginning on 23 May at the Kilmarnock Campus. Students from the Kilwinning Campus and the College’s Skills Centre of Excellence in Irvine celebrated at the Gailes Hotel in Irvine on 30 May, and Ayr Campus students celebrated at the Ayr Racecourse on 6 June.

Each student was presented with a certificate as well as a medal to commemorate their special achievement, supported at the event by their proud families, friends, college staff and employers. 

A number of local companies sponsored the awards including CDN, Dustacco Engineering Ltd, GE Aviation, KA Leisure, Mediaspec, Morrison Construction, The Prince’s Foundation, South Ayrshire Active Schools, Vibrant Communities and Wallace McDowall.

Student President Lainey McKinlay said to all students “Thank you for your hard work, dedication and tremendous achievements throughout the year.
