The outstanding achievements of students from across the county were celebrated at Exeter College’s annual Student Awards ceremony.

Hundreds of guests including tutors, family and friends, civic leaders and representatives of the city’s business community packed the Rougemont Thistle Hotel to see the winners for 2012/13 receive their awards on Thursday evening.

Guest speaker John Lee, the High Sheriff of Devon, congratulated all the winners, hailing them as the leaders of tomorrow.

“One of the reasons Exeter is such a fantastic city is because it’s such a vibrant and young city, and this college plays a huge part in that,” he said. “A lot was made of the gamesmakers at the Olympics, but you don’t have to go to London or wait for the Olympics to see what volunteers do. You only need to look around in our own communities, and I know our students have been involved in charity work supporting NSPCC and Make a Wish. We can see on our doorstep the difference they make and the real gems we often miss.”
