Matthew Hindle was honoured as Art and Design Student of the Year
A STAR student from Sidmouth was among 27 achievers who picked up gongs at the Exeter College Awards.
Matthew Hindle was honoured as Art and Design Student of the Year in front of his proud family.
Tutors described Matthew, who landed an A* on his fine art and graphics A-level courses, as “an exceptional student displaying total and complete commitment to producing his best possible work”.
Matthew, also a former Sidmouth College student, returned from his degree course in graphic design at the University of the Arts in London to receive his accolade.
He said: “My tutors have been a great inspiration to me and I wouldn’t be where I am now without them. I hope that I can be a strong influence on the design world in the future and learn from an ever growing, ever developing industry.”
The awards event was held at the Thistle Hotel last month.
