It wasn’t just a night to celebrate award winners, a number of FVC students volunteered to help out at the event which gave them valued experience and opportunities. Liam Hardie, a HND Sound Production student, provided entertainment on the night by performing a number of Johnny Cash songs with his acoustic guitar. Two more students from the Sound Production Department, Olly Campbell and Oliver Aitchison, supported by their lecturer Barry Frame, took on an important job by setting up and ensuring the audio for the night ran smoothly.

FVSA Student President Amber Little, said: “It was wonderful to finally have our awards ceremony in person after two years! The students and staff that we have celebrated at our awards are amongst the best that Forth Valley College have to offer. FVSA are proud to celebrate their achievements with them.”
