KBS is proud to announce that Miruna Beldiman (Business Studies with a Year in Industry) was awarded the Outstanding Contribution to College Life award at the Kent Student Awards 2015.
Miruna received the award at the annual ceremony on 8 May for her extensive volunteer work and for developing volunteering opportunities for students on the Medway campus. Attended by over 140 guests, Miruna was presented the award at the event by Professor Keith Mander, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Tammy Naidoo, President, Kent Union.
Miruna’s achievement reflects her dedication to volunteering and has also been awarded the Kent Certificate for Volunteering (KSCV) every year since becoming a student at KBS Medway. Miruna was “very happy” to have been given the award:
“The awards evening was extraordinary. It was a great opportunity to recognise the various ways through which students make the University of Kent a great place to study and develop.”
Giles Polglase, Operations Manager at KBS Medway nominated Miruna for the award alongside David Coldwell, Volunteering Coordinator at GK Unions, Medway. Mr Polglase managed Miruna during her placement year as Student Experience Assistant at KBS Medway and comments:
“Miruna’s enthusiasm for volunteering has seen her involvement in the Medway Business Society, to working on the Kent 50th Anniversary and as the European Commission Careers Ambassador for the University of Kent. Miruna’s positivity is infectious and she definitely brings out the best in those around her. I would like to congratulate her on an achievement which is well deserved.”
