Star_and_Special_IMG_0187Star and Special Award winners proudly show off their trophiesUxbridge College students received awards from a young entrepreneur who has built a global business from making jam to his Nan’s recipes.

The 23-year-old SuperJam innovator, Fraser Doherty, started making and selling jam when he was just 14, and now supplies 2,000 supermarkets internationally including Waitrose, Tesco and Morrisons.

Fraser congratulated the Uxbridge College students who included the overall winner Katherine Price of Ruislip, who received the Super Star prize sponsored by Lloyds Bank Corporate Markets.

Katherine, a student on the BTEC Level 3 in Performing Arts Music Practice, was chosen for her personal achievements, as well as for the way in which she has influenced the course to give it a greater emphasis on classical music. She plays the piano, flute and cello and has performed at events including Cinderella at Ruislip’s Winston Churchill Hall, and at College open evenings. She will now study music at university.

Achievers of all ages celebrated with friends, family and staff at Uxbridge College’s Annual Awards Ceremony 2012 on 20 September, at The Beck Theatre in Grange Road, Hayes.

The winners were chosen from among the 10,000 full-time and part-time students at the College, which has campuses at Uxbridge and Hayes in west London.

Special guest Fraser Doherty talked about his career and presented the awards, as well as meeting students afterwards. Scottish-born Fraser now supplies supermarkets globally with his 100% fruit jam, has won more than twenty awards, and invests in a number of community and charitable causes. His product is exhibited in the National Museum of Scotland as an ‘Iconic Scottish Brand’ alongside Irn Bru, Tunnock’s and Baxters.

Principal of Uxbridge College, Laraine Smith OBE, said: “There is nothing like this event to demonstrate just how much Uxbridge College means to those who study with us – and the impact it has on the wider community.

“I would like to congratulate all our award winners tonight for their achievements – both our students and those organisations recognised for the support they give us.

“Our students inspire me, humble me and remind me why Uxbridge College is such a special place.  Whatever each individual’s starting point or goal, we can offer them the teaching, facilities and support they need to move forward and achieve.”

Prizes included Achievement Awards and Star Awards for each of the College’s teaching areas, and Special Awards, some of which were given to organisations which support the College’s teaching and learning.
