On Saturday 30th September Score Group plc was delighted to be part of the North East Scotland College (Fraserburgh Campus) Graduation ceremony. Over the last few years, the number of awards received by Score’s apprentices at this ceremony has been quite high mainly due to the commitment the company has continued to place on providing engineering apprenticeships, and this year was no different. In total 41 Higher National Certificates and 6 Higher National Diplomas were presented to Score’s apprentices and other employees ranging from Engineering, Measurement & Control, Electrical, and Accounts.
In front of a packed auditorium at Fraserburgh, a warm welcome was given by the college board before each graduate was individually presented each accompanied by a generous round of applause. As has now become commonplace, a few Score sponsored awards were presented to outstanding students, and these this year were presented by James Geddes, Score Europe’s Commercial Director.
It was a very proud day for Score seeing these young men and women reaching another milestone in their career and may they go on to achieve ever greater awards in their future. It was however a double celebration this year.
Following on from the awards, a further award was presented by Ms Liz McIntyre, Principal and Chief Executive. The award was an Honorary Fellowship presented to Conrad Ritchie, now Managing Director of Score International Limited, for his valued commitment to the college over the years. In his address, Conrad humbly thanked the college and stated that it was an honour to receive such an award. He remarked that the college has served Fraserburgh and district for so many years including himself and also paid tribute to the founding members of the college. He continued by congratulating the HNC and HND graduates providing some encouragement saying this is not the end of the journey but merely the start of being all you can be in life.
Ms Liz McIntyre then gave a final address of congratulations to the graduates and assembled audience before concluding the ceremony.
We would like to congratulate all graduates, and of course Conrad, for the awards they received and trust they then went on to celebrate their achievements with family and friends.
