South West College celebrates the achievement of Higher Education students

On Friday, March 3, Higher Education students from South West College (SWC) will join with family and friends to celebrate their efforts and academic achievements at the annual graduation ceremony at The Strule Arts Centre, Omagh.

The ceremony will recognise and honour the hard work and dedication of more than 400 graduates and will feature addresses from SWC principal, Celine McCartan, and guest speaker, Emma Weaver, a former SWC student and founder of Mental Wealth International, while a student vote of thanks will be delivered by Aimee Fitzpatrick from Tempo who is graduating with a Foundation Degree in Tourism and Hospitality.

More than 30 special ‘Student of the Year’ awards will also be presented to students who have achieved outstanding success in their various disciplines.

Congratulating students on their achievements, Celine McCartan, Chief Executive of South West College said: “Graduation day is always a memorable occasion and an important milestone for our students.

“It is an opportunity to reflect upon their individual achievements, the knowledge gained, friendships made and experiences shared.

“It is a proud day not only for the students, but their families, friends, colleagues and the staff of South West College who have helped guide them to this point.

“I am delighted that the college is able to offer unique higher-level qualifications which have been developed to support local business.

“We know from our many industry partners that South West College students have the skills and qualifications they need to build successful careers.

“I congratulate each one of our graduates on their efforts and wish them every success for the future.

“I know they will do South West College proud and be strong ambassadors for the college.”

Reflecting upon her studies at South West College, Aimee Fitzpatrick said: “The Foundation Degree at South West College was really great and allowed me to work while completing my studies.

“The course has equipped me with the skills and knowledge needed in my current role with Blue Green Yonder, and I would encourage any students who are currently evaluating their options to strongly consider the opportunities available at South West College.”
