Former West Herts College student wins prestigious award
Former West Herts TV and Film student Lee Keogh won the Young Achiever of the Year at the local Audentior Awards.
Lee, who has worked hard raising awareness of access to parks and equipment for disabled children, became an ambassador at the Watford Chamber of Commerce as a result of his GAP experience with the college.
After working with our GAP team, who help students secure work experience, Lee met people across the borough and became a pioneer for accessibility.
Lee has a disability called Cerebral Palsy which means he is a wheelchair user.
The award, presented by Watford Council puts the spotlight on remarkable young people.
GAP team member Stephanie Islam, who helped Lee secure his work placement whilst studying at West Herts said: “He is an excellent ambassador for West Herts, we’re so unbelievably proud of him.
“Since studying at college Lee has started a film editing business. He likes to be considered an everyday normal bloke, he hates people calling him inspirational, and he just gets on with it.”
Lee said: “I was delighted to receive my award and I’m pleased I’m able to start highlighting what disabled people can do, instead of what they can’t do.”
