“Lorraine exemplifies what the College is about. As a member of staff, as a manager and as an employee she gives so much and particularly with Lorraine, allows others to give so much to make this organisation what it is. With the College continuing to grow and expand, we need people like Lorraine to build the future, to set the standards of performance and behaviour and be a model for all the staff. It is with great pleasure that I commend her for the award of the College Medal.”
