Danielle Hughes was named Inspirational Young Person of the Year at the Pride in Doncaster Awards recently.
A number of Doncaster College students and staff have won awards in recent months.
Students Danielle Hughes, Kanisha Fullwood and staff member Yvonne Ledger have featured in the Pride in Doncaster Awards and the Best in Education Awards.
Seventeen-year-old Danielle Hughes won the Inspirational Young Person of the Year Award at the Pride in Doncaster Awards Ceremony.
Kanisha Fullwood won The Personal Achievement Award and Yvonne Ledger won the Best Lunch Person Award at the Best in Education Awards Ceremony.
Danielle, of Bentley in Doncaster, received her award after volunteering at her local youth club for six years, where she earned such awards as first aid and fire marshal. She also volunteered for the youth council whilst at the youth club, where she and other young people debated issues facing the local community such as the rise in bus fares.
Danielle is currently studying childcare Level One at the College, and is hoping to progress to Level two and three before going to university.
She said, “At first I was going to do horse care at the High Melton campus but then I heard about the child care course and I’ve always worked with children so I thought I’d give it a go, I’ve really enjoyed it.
“I was really happy to win the award, I wasn’t expecting to. My family are really proud.”
Kanisha, is a third year Life Skills student who has serious medical issues which affect her mobility and can make her feel quite weak. Kanisha, 19, has passed all her qualifications and participates in all aspects of college life. She is an inspirational young woman who is always chatting and encouraging others.
Yvonne, who works in the College food hall at the Hub, was nominated because she is always helpful and approachable, cheerful and unflappable. She is regarded ‘as a great asset for the students’.
All three are worthy winners and are a credit to the College.
