The evening concluded with a Vote of Thanks by York College Governor, Helen Crews.

Glyn Jones commented: “I congratulate all the winners. They are an inspiration to our current students, and it’s wonderful to see so many of them back after a term away. It was a particularly difficult year for choosing students for many of these awards as the field was so strong – they are all worthy winners and I look forward to hearing about their continued successes. ”
