The Students’ Union hosted the Union Council Awards at which Class Reps were presented with Certificates of Merit in recognition of their voluntary contribution to campus life.
This was a great opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the hard work and dedication of these students in the presence of their family and friends. Class Reps play a very important role in the work of the Students’ Union and underpin its success in actively representing all the students of the Institute. They are the link between the Students’ Union and the wider student body and are the voice of their class. They are key to student engagement in CIT, at both a local and national level. They are also pivotal in ensuring students in their class have a sense of belonging and they are key to fostering a culture of inclusivity for our diverse student population.
The Students’ Union Sabbatical Officers, Aaron Buckley, President, Stephanie Kelly, VP Education, and Jeff Jones, VP Welfare, presented six Class Reps, who had been nominated by their class members, with awards in recognition of their ‘Outstanding Voluntary Contribution’. This year 79 nominations were received. The award recipients were:

��Colm Healy, Social Care – 2nd year
��Konrad Im, Community Development – 2nd year
��Matthew Kenneally, Marine Engineering – 1st year
��Jack Milne, Business Administration – 4th year
