Procession of graduates

Have your say

STUDENTS due to graduate from Barnsley College will walk through the town as part of the annual graduation ceremony today.

The graduation ceremony takes place at Barnsley Town Hall to honour those who have studied higher education courses.

Among the graduates is engineering foundation degree student Scott Coggin, 22, who started at the college six years ago and has progressed through every level available to him there.

He said: “I couldn’t do the job I do at Sheffield Forgemasters without college. I’m looking forward to the graduation, I always knew I wanted to work hard and get my qualifications and it’s great to have finally achieved it.”

The procession starts at noon and will be led by a local brass band.
