Celebrating students graduate at Brooksby ceremony
The event, which was at Brooksby Hall, brought together the graduating class, their lecturers, friends, family members, and well-wishers.
The Principal's Award was presented to Olivia Swinbourne and the UFAW Award for Best Dissertation to Charlotte Corden.
Olivia, who graduated with a BSc (Hons) in equine performance with business, also delivered the Student Vote of Thanks, commenting: “It is with the support from fellow students and staff that we were able to graduate today and that our futures are possible; so once again, on behalf of all the students, we thank you.”
Guest speaker was Jennifer Greene, an SMB Alumni and accomplished professional vocalist, who has graced stages worldwide with roles ranging from the Andrew Lloyd Webber European Tour to her recent position as a frontwoman and production manager for Women in Rock.
A welcome speech had been given by the college’s assistant principal, Jon Laud, who said: “Today we gather here to celebrate not just an end but a new beginning.
“Congratulations on your well-deserved success, we can’t wait to see what you will achieve.”
After the ceremony ended all graduates took part in the traditional gesture of tossing their caps into the air, capturing the moment with photos, and enjoying drinks and canapés, celebrating their achievements and looking towards the future.
