York St John University Students’ Union Awards 2019
Staff and students honoured at annual awards ceremony.
Forget the Oscars or the BAFTAS, awards season came to York St John last night, as staff and students gathered to look back at some of the highlights of another successful academic year.
The annual York St John University Students’ Union (YSJSU) Awards are voted for by staff and students, and offer a chance to honour those who have gone above and beyond in their role at the University.
YSJSU hosted the awards for 2019 in partnership with YSJU Learning & Teaching Team, with over 100 guests in attendance. There might not have been a red carpet, but there was plenty of silverware.
Steph Foxton is the President of Education for the SU, “The nominations for all the awards were inspiring to read. The amount of love students have for the courses they study, the staff who support them, and York St John is brilliant to see. The night was a great success and a lot of fun. Congratulations to everyone who was nominated and the winners of the awards."
