Business student wins LJMU Citizenship Award
A City of Liverpool College student has won this year’s coveted Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) Citizenship Award, which celebrates the contributions young people from different cultures and communities make to society.
19 year old Mohammed Jama was presented with a trophy by Lord David Alton, Director of the Foundation for Citizenship, and Prof. Nigel Weatherill, at the recent awards ceremony held at LJMU.
Mohammed, studying on the level 3 Business course, is an active member of the College’s Enrichment and Volunteering programme and has dedicated his time to a range of events including Christmas hamper packing for Age Concern, stewarding at the Roy Castle Foundation Spooky Welly Walk and assisting at the Kuumba Imani Millennium Centre open day. Mohammed is also a Student Ambassador and represents the college at open day and recruitment events.
Beverley Abbott, enrichment officer at The City of Liverpool College, said: “Mohammed shows great commitment, passion and enthusiasm in everything he does. His tutors are full of praise, highlighting his keenness to achieve and his care and respect for all. Mohammed is a credit to both himself and the College and is excellent role model for others.”
The LJMU Roscoe Foundation for Citizenship aims to promote the development of ethical students and an ethos of citizenship in the wider community.
