"She is a great example of how exploring a niche market can lead to an extremely successful business, even within a competitive environment."
The Awards Ceremony celebrates the success of students in the commitment and dedication they have shown to their studies over and above what would be expected, or for the sacrifices they have made to be successful at college.
A total of 30 students, aged between 16 and 42 received the special honours.
The students, representing all curriculum areas, were nominated by their tutors to receive the awards that have been sponsored by local companies and organisations.
Other guests included the Deputy Lord Mayor and Deputy Lady Mayoress, along with award sponsors, local employers, family and friends of the award winners, College staff and governors.
The event also celebrated the College's 'good with many outstanding features' judgement from Ofsted earlier this month.
Principal Phil Davies said: "The college's annual awards ceremony is one of the highlights of the college's events calendar and will be particularly special this year as not only will it be an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of our students, but also the outcome of our recent Ofsted inspection.
"It is an honour to be able to celebrate the outstanding qualities and achievements of our students with an evening dedicated to them, and in particular to share their success with their family, friends and employers."
