YALE College performing arts student Michael Jenkins has received the Helena Kennedy Foundation Award.
The Helena Kennedy Foundation was set up by further education college principals and adult educators in 1998 to support adult learners wishing to succeed in higher education.
Michael, of Yale College, received his certificate from Baroness Helena Kennedy at the House of Lords.
Frazer Ormondroyd, dance and musical theatre lecturer at the college said: “During his time here, Michael performed many varied roles, including the challenging Dan Mendoza in Jack the Ripper which he performed with aplomb.”
Michael is now studying a musical theatre degree at the University of Central Lancashire.
