Mairi Morrison (18) from Peterhead, who graduated from North East Scotland College with an HNC in Art and Design on Saturday, October 3, has been named the North East Scotland College Fraserburgh Campus SQA prize-winner.

She was nominated for the prize as a result of both her hard work and motivation in class and also for her ongoing commitment to working with young people in her local community.

During her course, Mairi volunteered to participate in the BP Tutoring Scheme which involves coaching local primary school children.

Mairi has also volunteered for the past six years as part of the Peterhead Academy Rock Academy Stage Crew team where she helps to design, build and paint scenery, backdrops and props.

She is also finding the time to achieve her Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.
