Celebrating Success 2020 - Holly Mattacks

Holly Mattacks - Art & Design Student of the Year

Holly Mattacks from Southend studies Level 3 Graphic Design at the college’s Southend Campus.

She was nominated for working consistently hard and achieving excellent results. She acted as the Course Rep in her second year and played an active role in these meetings to support her peers.

Next up for Holly is higher education. She’s due to study BA (Hons) Graphic Design at University of Hertfordshire and will be the first person in her family to go to university.

Holly said: “I feel happy about winning the award because I put a lot of hard work and thought into my art, and it gave me a sense of knowing that it was recognised. 

“What I like most about the college are the facilities it has to offer and the freedom to be as creative as you want.”
