A Rotary club president has performed one of his final duties which he has described as ‘inspirational.’ Rotarian John Law, outgoing president of Shrewsbury Severn Rotary Club, presented the Shrewsbury Colleges Group Star Awards which recognise students who have overcome adversity and personal challenges.
He described the awards as a ‘truly splendid event’ which he said were ‘incredibly well organised’ by Tracy Cottee, Clerk to the Board. Presenting the awards at the London Road Campus, John praised students: “Congratulations to all who have received a nomination and those receiving their awards.
“It is a privilege and a pleasure to continue to support the Star Awards for students at Shrewsbury Colleges Group.”
He added: “Long may we be able to support the Star Awards recipients who were inspirational.”
The scheme has been supported by Shrewsbury Severn Rotary Club since the awards began in 2017. This year the club bought silver salvers, certificates, vouchers and goody bags for the certificates and salvers as they had to be quarantined, a total cost of just under £500.
