It turned out to be a great night for Borders College at the recent College Development Network (CDN) Annual Awards after they were announced as ‘Winners’ in the ‘College Colleague of the Year Award’ category while also being ‘Commended’ in the ‘Sustainability Action Award’ category.
The Awards recognise the talent, innovation and achievement demonstrated by colleges, their staff and their learners throughout the year.
The ‘College Colleague of the Year Award’ category recognises any member of staff within a college who has made a significant investment of talent and time which has had a positive impact on others within the college and/or in their community, and Borders College was delighted when Health Care Lecturer Evelyn Chelley was announced as the ‘Winner’ on the evening.
Evelyn was put forward for the award for her inspiring work and dedication to her students and profession. Alongside her lecturing duties, Evelyn works as a nurse at Borders General Hospital, volunteers for the Scottish Mountain Rescue Services, cares for her mother, and is an active supporter of the My Name’s Doddie Foundation.
