Years of hard work and dedication were rewarded at a special graduation ceremony last weekend.

The University of Suffolk at East Coast College, Lowestoft Campus Graduation took place on Saturday, October 7.

Proud parents watched on as their sons and daughters took to the stage to receive the degree they worked so hard to achieve.

Special mention was given to Preedawan Moss, who received the award for Higher Education Student of the Year 2017.

Stuart Rimmer, East Coast College principal, said: “This student has played an important role in the group dynamics of the course.

“Through their determination to succeed this student has developed some sophisticated technical skills that should be commended.”

Mr Rimmer added: “Receiving your degree today successfully closes one set of dreams that you have imagined and through hard work made reality..

“Now it is may be time to allow yourself to dream once again. And I urge you to dream big.”
