The 2019 Kevin Carey student of the Year award is Andrew Pidgeon! The calibre of students this year was very high so well done to all our students and the judges were very impressed indeed by the innovation and hard work demonstrated by all the students. Through his presentation and his mentors comments, Andrew demonstrated very clearly his enthusiasm and commitment throughout his placement.
For those of you who didn’t know Kevin, he was a talented and professional Civil Engineer who started with Geda in 2011. In 2015 unfortunately he was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour and despite astonishing fundraising efforts of family, friends and his colleagues at Geda to raise funds to cover intensive medical treatment, Kevin sadly passed away on 3rd May 2017. During his time with us he was an excellent mentor to students and so we recognise our students in his memory. Natasha, Kevin’s wife presented Andrew with his award.
