Lews Castle College UHI student of the year 2013
Andrea Wallner, who has completed an honours degree in energy engineering, was praised for successfully juggling the demands of bringing up two children as a single mother, with full time study to gain exemplary grades.
Andrea was also recognised for her work as Lews Castle College UHI student president. Despite her busy schedule, she volunteered for the role to represent students around the college and organised social events to bring them together.
Now she has completed her degree, Andrea hopes to find a job where she can use her learning to help secure energy supplies to meet growing demands.
Speaking about her award, Andrea said: “I never thought I was doing anything to deserve this award. I just thought it would be nice if all the students could have more fun together and it was nice to be able to initiate things that will make student lives more exciting.
