Business School scholar scoops prize at first ever student awards
The first ever Students’ Guild Awards Ceremony was held in June 2013, created to recognise, celebrate and reward the student groups and individuals who have gone above and beyond the expectations of their fellow peers to help enhance the student experience here at Exeter.
The awards highlighted student engagement across the whole of the Students’ Guild - from volunteering and representation, to welfare and the local community – whilst also giving the Students’ Guild another opportunity to say thank you for the work and dedication students give to enhancing the student experience.
During the awards ceremony, 14 categories were awarded recognising the different aspects of the Guild. Over 450 nominations were received, representing the diverse range of activities that students participate in during their studies at the University of Exeter.
Anh Viet Huynh from the Business School won the award for Outstanding Academic Contribution based on his work with the School’s Staff and Student Liaison Committee (SSLC). Speaking after receiving his prize Viet said: “Thank you all very much indeed. I am, at this very moment, still stunned to receive the award and proud to bring it home for the Business School as the first year of the Guild's Awards. It has been a collective effort by everyone.”
Professor David Boughey, Associate Dean (Education) added: “Viet completed his undergraduate degree with us and is now an Accounting scholar. He's been a long-standing SSLC rep., a student ambassador, and made significant contributions to the EQUIS student groups. In summary this is a richly deserved acknowledgement of his sustained commitment to the Business School and to the University.”
The Students’ Guild would like to thank everyone whose work has made the Guild Awards 2013 such a great success, and congratulate all of those who were shortlisted, especially our winners. The full results can be found on the Guild website.
