On 10th May, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) student Hannah Scott was awarded with a Jack Petchey Achievement Award.

The Award is a peer recognition scheme which recognises the positive contributions, efforts and endeavours of young people aged 11-25 across London and Essex.

These achievements include being a great role model, volunteering, overcoming personal challenges and supporting others over and above expectations.

Award winners receive a £300 grant, which can be used for anything that will benefit their class.

RuTC has been involved in the Jack Petchey Achievement Award Scheme for several years and this May, student Hannah Scott has been chosen as winner for the Award.

In the case of Hannah, her teachers and peers, across the board felt that she deserved to win the award. Hannah has endured and excelled in her course, in part due to her always positive attitude, willingness to help others and determination to excel in her studies.

Hannah’s classmates explain why she won the award, stating “She is really helpful, supportive and always willing to help us with practical and written assignments.

“She has a great work ethic, and she is always on time for lessons, Hannah’s positive attitude is an inspiration to all of us.”

Hannah’s teacher, Neal Hook added “Hannah is a hard-working, helpful, kind and knowledgeable student whose positive attitude and kindness towards others doesn’t go unnoticed. She deserves to win this award for these reasons and more, she is a pleasure to teach.”
