Mo returns to his former college as guest of honour

Telford College welcomed back one of its most famous former students to hand out prizes at its end-of-year awards evening.

Mo Chaudry grew up in Wellington and began his education at the college. He spoke to students about the importance of ‘seizing the moment’, following their dreams and instincts, and refusing to be defeated by life’s disappointments or setbacks.

Mo then helped to hand out awards to more than 40 students for their outstanding achievement and significant improvement over the current academic year.

He said it was a great honour and privilege to have been invited back to the college which played such a pivotal role in his education. He told students that it was important to never be distracted from their ambitions by setbacks, saying: “Everyone has setbacks – it’s what you learn from them for the future that really matters, and makes the difference.”

Graham Guest, principal and chief executive, said: “The evening was an opportunity to celebrate the incredible achievements and progress of our students throughout the year.

“We were delighted to welcome Mo Chaudry to talk about his memories of his time at our college, share his motivational and inspirational story, and help recognise our students’ success.”
