CTK St Mary’s Evening of Celebration 2019
This month, we held the Christ the King Evening of Celebration at CTK St Mary’s. Our annual Evening of Celebration provides our students with the opportunity to reflect on the friendships, knowledge and skills that they have developed whilst studying at Christ the King. The event allows us to honour all their hard work and academic and extra-curricular achievements.
There were a variety of keynote speakers at the 2019 Evening of Celebration. Christ the King: St Mary’s were pleased to welcome alumnus Ren Balogun who offered her congratulations to the 2019 leavers on their dedication and hard work and reflected positively on her own experiences as a Christ the King student. After completing her studies at Christ the King, she went on to study Sociology at the University of Bath, where she worked assiduously in order to achieve her BSc Hons qualification. Ren now works as a Business Development Manager at the youth employability organisation: Circle Collective.
Former CTK St Mary’s student Trevor Gomes spoke with great eloquence about how his time at Christ the King gave him the strong academic foundation he needed to excel in his career. Trevor went on to achieve a First Class honours degree in Business Management at the University Of Westminster Business School and was awarded by the Dean as the highest achiever on his course. He currently works for BT as a Business Analyst and has recently been appointed as part of a team to lead the next stage of BT’s consumer brand EE’s 5G transformation.
It was a great privilege to have all our guest speakers join us in celebrating the achievements of our students and Christ the King would like to extend its sincere thanks to them all for taking time out of their busy schedules to honour the occasion. The College would also like to commend all of the 2019 leavers on their tenacity and hard work and looks forward to welcoming them back on results day in August 2019.
