MP Nick Harvey presents local student with BTEC award.
A North Devon student has been presented with a prestigious national BTEC award by MP Nick Harvey.
Samantha Banks, who studies at Exeter College, received the outstanding hospitality, travel and tourism student of the year award at a parliamentary reception.
Samantha was nominated by her tutor as a shining example of hard work and commitment and the judges were impressed by her outstanding grades, and her passion for the airline sector.
Mr Harvey said: “Samantha’s achievement is doubly impressive when you consider her daily 90 minute journey from her North Devon home to Exeter College, and her dedication has clearly paid off as she recently secured a job with EasyJet.
