The 18-year-old from Corringham was chosen for the Student of the Year Award by the senior management team out of all the award winners of the night. Harvey was chosen because of his resilience; he has had a tough couple of years but did not let this stop him from working hard and becoming an inspiration to fellow students and teachers alike.
Harvey who studied A-Level Sociology, English Literature and Law said ‘I feel honoured to have been nominated for this award. My favourite part of being a student at the College is having the support from my friendly teachers.’ Harvey also said ‘USP College is different to a school environment, it feels less formal but remains professional.’
Harvey now starts working to take his next steps in order to become a Lawyer, his dream career.
