Several ‘Tech’ staff received specially created City of Derry Crystal awards for their continuing commitment to the provision of quality education provision across the North West.

The North West Regional College (NWRC) recently held its bi-annual awards presentation for staff who have been recognised by colleagues, for the contributions they have made to College life under the institution’s staff award Scheme.

The nominations were reviewed by a panel made up of one appointed Chairperson and representatives from the College’s three campuses, which are situated across Londonderry, Limavady and Strabane.

As a result of the applications received, seven staff members were selected to receive awards in the various categories.

These were outlined by the College as ‘uniqueness,’ ‘ongoing quality,’ ‘cross college role/activities’ and ‘individual contribution to a team.’

Appropriately, Aisling McHugh was the only winner in the ‘uniqueness’ category.

There were three winners under the ‘ongoing quality’ category. These were Alison Campbell, Ann McDowell and Sabina O’Kane.

As in the ‘uniqueness’ category there was only one winner for ‘cross college role/activities.’

In this case the award recipient was Mark McLaughlin.

And in the ‘individual contribution to a team’ category there were two winners.

These were Corriena Moffatt and Colette Poland.

Dame Geraldine Keegan, Member of the Governing Body and Deputy Director Calum Morrison presented each recipient received a recognition award created by City of Derry Crystal, as well as a £50 gift voucher for Foyleside Shopping Centre.

The presentations were made at a special awards in Londonderry.

The College’s three main campuses in Londonderry, Limavady, and Strabane cater for a considerable 20,000 students.
